Anybody know of any stores selling Swedish products in and around London?  I'm sure there must be.  We will probably have serious withdrawals if we can't find our usual Zoegas coffee after we run out of what we will bring with us.
If you don't know where you're going, it doesn't matter what road you take.

They sell Swedish coffee (dont know if its the brand youre wanting), Swedish sweets, crisps, cider... those little cinnamon rolls, biscuits/cookies, meatballs...  and all sorts of other stuff that i've not really looked at.

http://www.wingyip.com is great for Chinese/asian products.  They have stores in Croydon, Manchester, Birmingham and London (Cricklewood).

They also have mail order http://www.wingyipstore.co.uk/floorplan.php  and they have Sriracha Chilli Sauce.  Not Red Rooster brand but rather Suree Brand (I still have my trusty Red Rooster stuff bought in Boston's Chinatown...) but maybe will do?

I second Wing Yip as an amazing store!  Inexpensive and lovely food!

I cook alot and we really love foods from all over. I have recently started a list (with labels included) of certain things that I would surely miss. THis list is for a friend of mine to keep when we leave. I am hoping that I'll find the same or similar products in the UK, but if not my friend will be well prepared to head to the shops in the states for me.

know where I can get REAL dill pickles? (Like Claussen.) I have purchased about ten jars of pickles since I moved here, and even if the package says "dill," they always seem to be sweet. Anyone who can help me with this has my undying gratitude.  :)


Have you tried Kosher food stores??

I've actually found the variety and availability of all manner of ethnic food  products fairly good where I am.
Of course as is well documented Leicester is quite the melting pot of cultures!

ASDA has all the TexMex, Thai, Indian, Chinese etc products I could ever possibly want!
I want to pack up the entire shop and take it along back with me in March! ;D

mexican supplies in london
« Reply #27 on: March 28, 2006, 07:55:11 PM »
i just happened on El Azteca, a little hole in the wall between the Elephant and Castle tube and the volvo dealer on new kent rd.  i bought a few sauces and tortillas, and they were very good. the owner is mexican and very gracious.  prices seem better than lupe  pintos, but they don't have as large a range of products. they deliver to zones 1 and 2 in london.  they also cook and deliver various meals on fridays, also cater parties.  website: www.elazteca.co.uk
