Where's the Best Asian Grocery Store in Perth? - Perth More and more people enjoy cooking and eating food from different cultures nowadays, and that includes Asian food. However it is not that easy to find them in our normal grocery shops. Some supermarkets stock them, but they are far from complete and quite a few products have been "Australianised" to adhere to market taste. If you need prove of this, compare some items from our supermarkets to authentic Asian versions: "hot" curry paste (try "Action A1" brand from Malaysia), sweet soya sauce ("Kecap Manis Bango" from Indonesia), fish sauce ("Three Crabs" from Vietnam), tea, chilli, noodles ... the list goes on.
Perth As part of Perth's role as the capital of Western Australia, the state's Parliament and Supreme Court are located within the city, as well as Government House, the residence of the Governor of Western Australia. Perth became known worldwide as the "City of Light" when city residents lit their house lights and streetlights as American astronaut John Glenn passed overhead while orbiting the earth on Friendship 7 in 1962. The city repeated the act as Glenn passed overhead on the Space Shuttle in 1998. Perth came 9th in the Economist Intelligence Unit's August 2012 list of the world's most liveable cities, and was classified by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network in 2010 as a world city. History Indigenous history The area where Perth now stands was called Boorloo by the Aborigines living there in 1827 at the time of their first contact with Europeans. Boorloo formed part of Mooro, the tribal lands of the Yellagonga.
