Tea, spicy stuff and candy are our Lee Lee staples.
What We Bought: Lee Lee is the ideal place to get your favorite ingredients from Asia because it's as authentic as it is massive. They seem to stock more than one brand of every kind of thing from pots and pans to fresh jumbo squid.

First off, we always grab a $3 large bottle of Sriracha when we're here because it's way cheaper at Lee Lee than other local grocery stores. Another of our favorite seasonings is hot chili sesame oil, which is a little pricier than Sriracha at $6 per bottle, but adds insanely unique flavor to your meals.

Another of our top reasons to hit Lee Lee up is weird candy. We usually grab some tamarind and sesame candy, but we decided to go for some individually-wrapped kiwi and mangosteen gummies this time for $3.69 per bag. Finally, we always grab a huge tin of loose-leaf jasmine tea before we go. The giant $7 tin has enough calming jasmine tea to get us through a month or so, plus the container is absolutely adorable and great for crafting and storage after the tea runs out.

Glad I'm not the only one who thought this article was offensive and crapastic. I would think that writing for Chow Bella would be a dream job for a talented journalist, why hand it over to someone who's writing sucks so bad that just reading it makes you want to punch them in their big stupid close minded face?

What a pathetic excuse for an article. How about having someone who isn't a white person looking for food they've seen at Fry's review this place? Geez....

Interesting article , thanks for using such words as "weird" and "creepy" to describe items in a store that you are reviewing.

They really do have everything, was looking for jasmine extract all over the valley and they were the only place I found it and cheap.

My favorite product at Lee Lee's is the Pickled Lime Condiments!

Not as good a store as it use to be. Prices have went up and selection has gone down. I use to drive from the far east valley but no more. If I happen to be in the area I pick up a 50 lbs bag of rice.

The people selling the duck are gone now too. 

I have left my ethnic taste for the more affordable WinCo in mesa now.
