  • The best Thai Supermarket North of Leeds, South of Newcastle is...............

    Not posted for a while.....still wallowing in my own glory of winning the Colin Premiership at the first attempt and drowning in Birra Morretti during quarantine

    Anyway, now back in the UK after 3.5 years in the Netherlands....Thai wife in tow now also.....just for the record she pointed out to me what a poopie hole the UK looks like compared to the cleanliness of Netherlands, Germany and Belgium...to be fair she has a point, took me by surprise also!! . I'm sure my fellow compatriots will win her over though in due course....

    So Supermarkets, anyone living in the Northern part of England recommend a decent shop or one that at least covers all her favourite cooking sauces, rice etc etc...

    I've had a scour across Google Maps and a few have popped up....if you know these please chirp up...appreciate the feedback.

    Nong Fern Thai - Leeds
    Nong Mai Thai - Hull
    Pear Thai - Sheffield
    Golden Pearl - Durham
    Bua Yai Thai - York

    Tack Thai Food - Wigan, for when I commute to North Wales....

    If you know any more 'Asian' Supermarkets that are worth a monthly trip, again, much appreciated. Ideally in the North, North East.

      We use Pear Thai on a regular basis and they are never short of Thai products. We know the owner very well and I think she has started a delivery service, but not sure how far they will travel. Could find out if needed.

        Well you know how the well known saying goes. It's grim up north.
        If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

            We are down in Essex and have ordered from https://www.tackthaifood.com/

            delivery in 2 days, needed Mae Rien for Som Tam

            The supermarkets seem to do quick delivery services now, even fresh and frozen.

              I've used Pear Thai in Sheffield and Nong Mai Thai in Hull.

              Pear Thai is a bit bigger and has more of a selection but Nong Mai Thai has all the basics that you need too.

              Pear Thai do deliver but when I got a delivery (a while ago during one of the lockdowns) we sent a list via the facebook messenger page, she totalled it up and then told us how much to pay.

                We use the Asian supermarkets/shops around Newcastle, MA Brothers, Brighton Grove Store, all pretty much the west end of the toon. They're not Thai specific but do sell stuff like white egg plant, long beans, birds eye chillis etc, my wife likes to go every couple of weeks to stock up.
