Chinese Food House and Ginza Market


A reader emailed me a few days ago letting me know they had found another Korean supermarket in Kuwait. According to the reader they were trying to find danmuji so they went to Singarea Supermarket and couldn’t find it there. So they asked their favorite Korean restaurant if they knew where they could get it from and they were told about another Korean supermarket in Shuwaikh called Ginza Market. So I passed by over the weekend to check it out. The store is small and seems to be catered more to restaurants than consumers since I was offered a list of all their items to keep with me in case I needed to order anything. But as a consumer you can also pick up whatever you want from their shelves. They’re open from 8AM to 8PM and their phone number is 22205091. Here is their location on [Google Maps]


While looking for Ginza Market I also ended up finding a Chinese Supermarket called Chinese Food House. It’s located in the same building block as Ginza and the store specializes in food products imported directly from China. I couldn’t figure out what they had since everything was written in Chinese but I did find some odd items like century eggs and salt baked chicken feet. They’re open from 8AM to 5PM and their phone number is 97533702. Here is their location on [Google Maps]

Both those stores have very friendly and helpful staff so don’t be afraid to ask them newbie questions.

Update: Ginza Supermarket has moved and the Google Maps link above has been updated.

every nation has its different types of food, it may be disgusting to you but delicious to others and it may be delicious to you but disgusting to others.

That is good to know .. at least we buy some things there for our Chinese recipes. Thanks for the information.

Ginza’s Srilankan Manager panders only to the Japanese, Koreans and big restaurant owners. He has no time for normal customers and is rude to his own staff and treats them very badly.
We saw his behavior first hand and have stopped going to Ginza. Singarea and Yamama are better stocked and more reasonable.
