Finally found a new Chinese cash 'n' carry which is the closest to our place yet - still about 40 minutes. Loon Fung is a huge store just off the A40 at Hangar Lane (take first exit if coming from the west and then turn left at Sainsbury/B&Q). It bills itself as the largest Chinese grocery supplier in the UK. It also has a restaurant so we went there for dim sum (average) and then did a massive shop. Treated ourselves to some durian, mangosteen, coconut juice, roast duck, etc. Even got some Chinese sausages imported from Vancouver (Wing Wing Co Ltd on East Hastings no less). Gave the kids some "Salted Cumquat Liquoriced" which Jenny used to get as a kid and our kids thought it was disgusting. I totally agree with them!
