International shops with Asian products

Milan is full of small food shops that sell dozens and dozens of international products. Many of these shops mainly sell South American and Central Asian products, but in some of them it is also possible to find Asian food (China, Korea and Japan).

Here is a short list of neighborhood food shops, some more well-stocked and more cared for than others, where you can get supplies at the last minute.



Fit Alimentari

If you are looking for fresh vegetables (pak choi, Chinese eggplant and cabbage, taro), noodles, ready-made sauces and Korean condiments, this shop is for you.

It is not on Google Maps, it is located between the Franco Calzature shop and the Simone wine shop, a few steps from the Bande Nere stop.

📍 Via Forze Armate, Milan 💰 $$
