My Asia Supermarket Belfast Top (Vegan & Veggie) Picks!

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a BIG fan of the legendary Asia Supermarket - especially the new one (the other one was on Agincourt Ave for 25+ years so 7/8 months is still pretty new…), and here i’ve put together a little shopping list of my top (Vegan & Veggie) picks!

I’ve been going to this place as long as I remember - my dad Big Brian was also a big fan - but if you’re not sure where i’m on about, here’s a handy map!

1 - Chana Masala & Chana Dal Masala

These are the perfect spice mix for chickpea and lentil based curries, and a firm favourite in my cupboard.

2 - Tinned Jackfruit!

You’ve probably seen this on menus on everything from pizza, to burgers, to salads, to wraps. It’s often a substitute for pulled pork, so you can give it a go for Meatless Monday.

Check out Bosh TV for some awesome easy ideas!

3 - Tinned Chickpeas & Black Beans

Another cupboard staple, either of these are a great base for curries, chillis, or why not dive into the archives and try out some of my fave burger recipes!

4 - King Soba Noodles

I love a good noodle, and there are countless variations on offer, but these bad boys are my fave. Perfect addition to stirfrys, soups, broths… try them out!


Asia Supermarket Belfast - Fitness Belfast Top Picks - Vegan Vegetarian - Tahini.png

5 - Al Nakhil Tahini

Basically just mushed up sesame seeds, but until you’ve had some tahini as a spread on your sandwiches and burgers, or as a dip for your falafels, you’ve missed out. There are many out there, but for me, this one tops the bunch.


Asia Supermarket Belfast - Fitness Belfast Top Picks - Vegan Vegetarian - Coconut Butter Scotch Sauce.png

6 - Coconut Butter Scotch Sauce

I’ll admit, i’d no idea what this was. But I took a risk on this coulda been gross little jar, and it paid off in spades. My daily porridges or overnight oats have never looked back.


Asia Supermarket Belfast - Fitness Belfast Top Picks - Vegan Vegetarian - Soy Sauce.png

7 - Light Soy Sauce

Probably doesn’t need too much explaining, but just in case - soy sauce will make an already good stir fry, or tofu scramble, absolutely brilliant. Get some.


Asia Supermarket Belfast - Fitness Belfast Top Picks - Vegan Vegetarian - Falafel.png

8 - Falafel Mix

Time to dive into the archives again… falafel mix is perfect as a base for burgers, and falafels are perfect in wraps, salads, sandwiches… they’re great on their own! Invent your own use!


That’s it for the picks, have a visit and let me know some of your faves - AND try out the cafe while you’re there - enjoy!
