Dinh Dinh Asian Food is a St. Catharine’s landmark, supplying exotic gourmands with the ingredients necessary to make authentic Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai foods for over twenty years. If you’re not sure what anything is, don’t be shy to ask owner Anh Troung for assistance; she happily advises newbies through the selections. She also speaks knowledgably about the medicinal properties of key Asian ingredients. There is a large selection of Asian snack foods, desserts and drinks and a fresh vegetable section with mushrooms, herbs, and Asian vegetables, typically found in urban Chinatowns. Indian and Korean ingredients also available. While shopping with Anh, snack on taro cakes, mini flour coated morsels that are soft, squishy to the bite and somewhat sweet on the tongue. A whole package will be gone before you impulse buy a package of ginsing for your curry.
