    If you want even better deals, visit the wet markets near closing (just before 7pm?). Too late for cooking supper today but can be used for tomorrow's.

    I wanted to make spaghetti bolognaise yesterday but lacked onions and peppers. I went to our local MarketPlace and was horrified by the price of the peppers at 22 hkd a pop (and the cost of oranges at 18 for 3). Took the bus to the wet market (hkd4.3 x 2) and purchased two peppers and two onions for 16 hkd, plus 5 oranges for 20. Also found some canned tomatoes for 10 hkd a can and some very nice looking grapes. Definitely worth the bus fare!

    Gateway (The American store that imports in bulk from Costco) sells some spices in 29oz containers for around $120. Naturally however 'spices' ain't one product and prices vary hugely.

    This image shows 1Kg 'refill bag' (without all the plastic shit from the US) of Paprika for $122.

    And all orders over $100 get free delivery.
