East And West Chinese Supermarket

  • 489 New Cross Road

East & West Supermarket was a Chinese supermarket at the Deptford end of New Cross. As of spring 2011, Crosswhatfields reports that it has closed.

The information below is retained for people who want to know what it used to be like.

A Chinese supermarket with a massive selection of noodles, spices, rices, tea, and canned sauces as well as a good selection of fresh tofu and small freezer section. They don't sell fresh vegetables however. There are also lots of bowls, tea sets, bamboo steamers and woks.

I like this place because it's a short walk from my house and because the people who run it talk loudly in Chinese *constantly*. They pretty much ignore you and continue shouting in Chinese even as they ring up your purchases and barely acknowledge you leaving. Marvellous.

Last visited by Bec, some time in 2007.
