We’ve all been there. Roaming the narrow, aromatic aisles of an Asian grocer in search of Gochujang, Hoisin sauce, or any other myriad of tasty Asian ingredients for your dish. It’s not as easy as walking around Woolworths, but it’s definitely more interesting.
Unfortunately, while Asian groceries are becoming more common, they’re still quite sparse in many areas around Sydney, but one service is about to change all that.
Enter eBest. It’s the one-stop-shop for all your Asian grocery needs and then some. The app initially launched in Australia back in 2020, but the compulsory Mandarin format limited its customer base. Now, the English version is attracting a wider audience via a user-friendly website, bringing its well-stocked products to the masses.
“We have observed a growing demand for Asian cuisine among a diverse range of customers in Sydney. This surge in interest, coupled with our commitment to inclusivity and convenience, led us to launch this service in English. We believe that by providing our services in English, we can cater to a wider audience, making Asian food more accessible and enjoyable for all,” said eBest PR manager Jessica Yue.
According to Yue, this surge in cuisine and cultural curiosity can be attributed to the influence of pop culture, including K-pop. “We have witnessed an increased curiosity and appreciation for Asian grocery items among our customers. By launching this service, we aim to meet this rising demand and offer a convenient way for people to access and enjoy authentic Asian ingredients.,” she said.
Scroll through the website to find more than 30,000 products, ranging from high-quality Asian ingredients to ready-made meals, cooking utensils, and more. There’s even a range of cosmetics, with the latest in-trend products from major international companies and the top specialist Asian skincare brands. If you’re after a ready-made meal, eBest stocks dumplings, sticky rice, and more dishes from restaurants such as Taste of Shanghai, Jufeng Garden, Seven Eclipses, and Xiyue.
With multiple warehouses in Sydney’s west, eBest delivers fast across the city, so you can start cooking an incredible dish in no time.
