I tried shopping at the Bristol Chinese Supermarket hidden in plain sight

Jul 3, 2022

I tried shopping at the Bristol Chinese Supermarket hidden in plain sight The unassuming shop is ever-popular and never quiet of shoppers eager to get their hands on the goods it stocks FIND OUT WHAT'S ON NEAR YOU WITH OUR NEWSLETTER Something went wrong, please try again later.Invalid Email SIGN UP We use your sign-up to provide content in ways you've consented to and to improve our understanding of you.

And one of those is 168 Oriental. Tucked away on the busy City Centre road, it's almost hidden in plain sight. But, the unassuming shop is ever-popular and never quiet of shoppers eager to get their hands on the goods it stocks. It's accompanied by a neighbouring restaurant and although the restaurant has been on Nelson Street for a number of years, run by different owners, the supermarket is a newer addition. The idea for multiple sections is intentional, with the owners referring to 168 Oriental as "little Chinatown”. The shop is a haven for Bristol's Chinese community, who can visit to pick up authentic goods that may be missing in mainstream shops. And so we took a visit to experience just what the regular customers enjoy so much. Being a novice to Chinese produce, I had no idea of what goods I wanted to pick-up and so, it was more exciting than your everyday trip to Tesco. I felt like a child in a sweet shop, surrounded by a host of unfamiliar goods. The first thing anyone would notice, if they were comparing this quaint Chinese Supermarket to a supermarket chain - is the amount of colour that jumps out from the shelves. The shelves are stocked full of fun, with bright colours demanding your attention everywhere you turn. I decided that noodles were most likely a safe option and with the endless amount of options, it was hard not to be spoilt for choice. I'll admit, my choice was mainly influenced by the pink, heart-covered packet but I grabbed some chicken flavoured ramen, which I hope will taste as nice as they look. Next to go in my basket was an item that took me by surprise. It was branded 'Chupa Chups' but wasn't your typical lollypop. Instead, the shelf was home to a variety of Chupa Chups sparkling drinks. There was a wide variety of flavours, from strawberry and cream to lemon and lime - but I opted for mango. This time influenced by my like for the flavour as opposed to pretty packaging. I chose a few products simply for the pretty packaging I kept on wandering through the aisles and came across shelves, stacked high with sauces and immediately began a hunt for hoisin sauce - a personal favourite. I spotted a bottle marked 'Sweet Hoisin Sauce' and added it to my basket without hesitation. The next destination I stumbled upon was full of snacks, with a huge range of crisps calling my name. The language barrier meant I was unsure of a few flavours and so I opted for a safe option, on seeing a packet named 'Cheezy-O' - which I can only assume will be some sort of Wotsits equivalent. My last pick-up is, perhaps the item I'm most excited about. I spotted a box of match-stick type cookie and cream flavoured biscuit sticks which I imagine will be dangerously moreish. I wondered through the rest of the shop and came across freezers, which had pork and beef rolls - similar to the types you would find at at a Korean BBQ. As well as ice creams and other exciting treats. The fact I wasn't going straight home after my shop meant that buying any items that needed to be chilled was a risk, but I'll be re-visiting to explore this section in future. Whether you're a regular at the Chinese Supermarket and are just updating your stock, or - like me, you're open to exploring items you don't usually eat, 168 Oriental is a great place to pick up items you won't find at your local Tesco.
