We are blessed to have a wide variety of grocery stores such as Aeon Big, Cold Storage, and Jaya Grocer. However, sometimes we want to cook something fancy and need some premium goods. Which is why Mercato in Penang is the place for all your needs!
While I admit that Jaya Grocer and Cold Storage can be enough for your imported goods, sometimes we want something extra. Especially for occasions such as birthday or Christmas parties.
So where can you get the freshest seafood? Or maybe you want your very own nut butter? What about some premium wagyu beef for that amazingly delicious steak? Mercato has the answers for those problems and more.
Firstly, the premium grocery store prides themselves on being the only grocer in Penang to sell high quality wagyu beef. Here you can find Japanese Wagyu A5, OBE organic beef, and even Dorper lamb.
Mercato also has a live aquarium available so you know you’re getting your seafood as fresh as possible. In the tanks you will find Boston lobsters, grouper fish, and more. There is also a variety of seafood such as salmon, fresh oysters, clams, and squids.
Next, they have an Ice Cream Rolls station! Yup, you can now get your own ice cream made right in front of you. If the variety of fruits offered doesn’t please you then you can simply buy something from the aisles.
Lastly, customers can have their very own nut butter made for them in about 10 minutes. Just pick from their nuts selection which includes almonds, cashews, black sesame seeds, and macadamia nuts. You can also make your own combination. No preservatives added!
Mercato is located in Gurney Plaza where Cold Storage used to be. Don’t forget to check out their promotions as well!
