There's also a Vietnamese supermarket on Southwark Park Road, opposite the Blue market. It's called Vinh Phat.

this is sooo spooky I just logged on to ask that very question!!!

smoggy - where about on Old Kent Road is the Chinese supermarket?

I think smoggy refers to the asian supermarket just to the right of Asda, on the corner of Ossory Road(?). There is another on Walworth Road, about number 233. It has everything but their knowledge of English is limited so be sure what you are asking for. It adds to the fun. Alternatively, if you fancy popping into Chinatown, the New Loon Moon is my favourite and worth the journey. An amazing range from most Asian cuisines, plus herbs and veges that you will need.

no connection etc

Yes, New Loon Moon in ChinaTown is very good - they also sell Lipton's Iced Tea powder (tastes exactly like the bottles and costs 1.85 for a big bag!)

There's another good asian supermarket next to the Morrisons in Peckham - by Peckham Rye Lane. The 78 bus stops opposite it...

And another (slightly bigger) branch of the same supermarket, Wing Tai, near Camberwell Green (on the west side of Denmark Hill).

Why not ask the chef at The Hartley on TBR? Looks like a husband & wife team in the kitchen. Just a thought ...
