I know what you might be thinking, “Psh, $6.97, I can go lower.”, and you definitely can at Tai Ping! If you haven’t heard of it before, I’m here to introduce you to Tai Ping, an Asian supermarket on Beach Road which has prices that will knock your socks off.

With products at these prices though, you always have to exercise caution. Don’t try anything dodgy and always check the expiry date (especially stuff on sale)! I normally get fruits (bananas) and my friend always gets eggs and snacks from here. The drinks are pretty great too and they even have a place where they sell meats on rice at pretty insane prices. For our first ever meal at Carlaw, a friend and I went to Tai Ping and got $8 worth of BBQ Pork, cooked it with some eggs, bean sprouts and served it with rice and bok choi, 10/10 meal. We only used a quarter of the pork for and still had leftovers enough for two more days.

Wow, look at me gushing. Anyways, since I went to Tai Ping pretty frequently, I took this opportunity to try some of the weird and (most of the time) wonderful foods that they sell here to try. Don’t worry, the stuff you’ll find there will be more tame than what I’ve shown here!


Don’t worry, I’ve had my fill of eating foods on camera so you can expect something new next time!
