    Question asian groceries in Wellington

    It's probably too late to ask this for tomorrow, but if so I can still use the info later... I'm going to be in Wellington tomorrow. I don't get there very often, and I'm on a tight schedule. I want to run by an asian grocery to look for some vegan goods. I see online that there's a Yan's Supermarket on Hopper and a Hunyung Asian grocery on Cambridge Terrace. Is one bigger/better than the other? Is there another one?

    Thanks for any advice!

    They're not grocery stores, but listed here, there's a couple of Asian style vegan friendly restaurants that might appeal to you:

    Thanks for the link - I hear that Nature in Hutt and Aunty Mena's in Welly are the best places to eat.

    In case it helps anyone in Welly, I went to Yan's Supermarket on Hopper St. - open until 7:30pm daily, and the place is huge. Got seaweed, sauces, silken tofu... Although it's a Chinese market mostly, they have a Japanese section. Lots of dried mushrooms of every variety, beans, noodles, rice of every description... Well pretty much just your large asian grocery. Forgive the gushing; I live a ways away, so stopping by was a treat.
