They had a small selection of fresh vegetables. They had a small section of Japanese food and Cantonese-based products.

This is now the location of Canton Supermarket.

They even have a mouth-watering selection of Cantonese specialty dishes—including the most authentic and delicious BBQ pork you can get—served HOT! In addition to the fresh noodles that they make, they also sell a local brand of oyster sauce that is top quality. I prefer to buy the oyster sauce here because it does not contain MSG. —Cherkwai

They are usually the freshest and best bean sprouts that I'm able to find in town. Fresh vegetables are often good, especially on Thursdays after their delivery. I don't buy instant ramen often but when I do, I like the Myojo brand "Chukazanmai" which West Lake sells for a much lower price than other Asian markets and Wegman's. —KairakuShugisha
