Jia Ho Super Market
Equipped with mountains of fresh produce, tanks filled with live seafood, and more sugary snacks than you could possibly imagine, Jia Ho is Boston’s reigning champion when it comes to East Asian spices, ingredients, and cookware.
“Jia Ho has a really sick instant noodle aisle,” says Moy. “I always find something new but I’ve definitely found some misses there—you see something really interesting so you just grab a six-pack and it can be hit or miss. One of my favorites was this new spicy beef Korean instant noodle, it almost tastes like Shin Ramyun but the noodle is more like instant ramen texture. But yeah, Jia Ho is my go-to market in Chinatown.”
