99 Ranch Market, one of the nation’s largest Asian grocery chains, made its New York State debut this weekend with the grand opening of a 45,000-square foot store in Westbury, Long Island. Stocked with more than 10,000 unique items from around the world, the eclectic store is bringing a real taste of Asian culture to its newest neighborhood.

Although it’s definitely known for its extensive selection of popular Asian snacks, authentic sauces, dry goods, and frozen products, 99 Ranch Market is so much more than a grocery store. In addition to a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and premium selections of meat and poultry, they offer live seafood that they will clean, fry, and steam for you at no extra charge.

The store also features a full-service bakery and hot deli where you can enjoy the best of Chinese cuisine, including fresh dim sum, barbecue, noodles, cakes, and confections. 

Best of all, to highlight the diversity of Asian food, eateries including River Sushi, Shanghai Yu Garden, Pho Grand, and Coco will soon be joining 99 Ranch Market’s “Eat Up” Food Court, which seems like a place I could spend many happy hours.

“To Asian Americans, we are their home away from home,” says a company statement. “To all other ethnic groups, we are the link for you to experience and learn about Asian cultures.”

I’m ready to learn and will be picking up some sesame paste, soy sauce, and rice vinegar to whip up a batch of cold sesame noodles. And for dessert? I’m all about those Kit Kat Mini Choco Bananas and I Mei Chocolate Cream Wafers

99 Ranch Market has 56 total locations across California, Texas, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, Massachusetts, and now New York. While the hours of each store may vary, locations are open seven days a week.
