99 Ranch Market has become the go-to Asian supermarket in the western U.S., promising “warm and prompt customer service, diverse and enticing products and competitive pricing.” Of course there’s a local store in Arcadia, carrying on the chain’s 30-year tradition. The Arcadia market just underwent a needed renovation; parking remains … a bit crazed. Everything you’d expect from a Chinese food mart and then some: buns, boba, Asian spirits & beer, exotic produce, several noodle aisles. Pick out a fish and they’ll fry it for you on the spot. Bring your patience and a sense of humor — it’s not just shopping, it’s an adventure.
