Even though import stores are scarce in Kaohsiung, it's comforting to know that there is a place like Tung Hai Foods Store to purchase hard-to-find products, like blueberry pie filling and Tang drink mix. Tung Hai Foods Shop is the oldest import store in Kaohsiung-it was started over 50 years ago! According to the owner, about 90% of their customers are foreigners. Located nearby the Love River, the store is easy to find. Many products that are non-existent in a typical grocery store can be found here at reasonable prices. If you're in the mood for Mexican food, you can purchase refried beans, taco shells and sour cream, all at the same time! Those with a sweet tooth might enjoy a variety of pie fillings, cake mixes or even Jello. If you don't cook much, try the Indian mixes. They're simple, delicious and a nice break from fast food. Condiments like pickles, salad dressing and spices can also be purchased here, along with a few German foods. One of the most popular items is the salami from Spain (NT$210), along with a good selection of cheeses (NT$65/100 grams).
