Wing Yip is a huge supermarket that carries over 2500 different types of oriental groceries. There are stores in Mancheseter, Birmingham, Croyden and Cricklewood in London. Wing Yip sells mostly chinese food products including sauces & spices, fresh seafood, exotic fruits, fresh noodles and dried food products as well as Chinese and Japanese kitchenware and tableware. You can also find a good selection of other oriental food products from Thailand, Japan and Malaysia.
The branch in London (Cricklewood) is located at 395 Edgware Road near Staples Corner with free car parking for customers. It is housed in a cute Chinese style building (as in the photo above) and has a Chinese restaurant and bakery selling all types of tasty Chinese buns and snacks.
I’ve been to the Chinese restaurant on several occasions for their hugely popular lunchtime dim sum. Their dim sum menu has all the usual favourites and is always promptly served deliciously fresh and piping hot. The restaurant opens at 11am for lunch so either go early or arrive at around 2pm for a late lunch to avoid the queues.
