    Kong Fui supermarket

    Andrea, how is the Kong Fui grocery for snacks and beer? We're staying at the Radisson in 2 weeks and I just want to get a few things for the room.

    Thanks for your advice on restaurants! I'm bringing the kid with me and will probably go more casual. Planning on Buguloe's, Casa Tua, Smokey Joe's, French Steakhouse, Laguna's, Linda's, and maybe Papillon. The kid's don't go for the "fancy" stuff - they would probably eat at Hard Rock every day...!

    it is OK for snacks, soda, beer and juice.
    i have been in the store a number of times since it has opened and even 3 weeks ago, their selections are not great.

    i still prefer Lings or Superfood.

    Hi Andrea,

    We have used Kong Fui a little more on this trip. They are average for fresh produce and do lack certain packaged items...pasta for instance. Also, Maipo Cabernet sells at other locations for Afl10.50. At Kong Fui it is 10.99Afl. Also there beer pricing is higher.

    Given what happened with our cards being compromised there last year, we almost always use cash. We have also encountered the language issue. Yesterday Bobbie needed an item and they did not understand. She found it and went to show the staff. Interesting result....they shooed her out of the store!!!!!! Indeed a weird place
