Asian Markets in Kaiserslautern

As part of my walks through town where I check out all manners of stores, I came across several Asian grocery markets in Kaiserslautern. I don't know much about these types of stores or what constitutes a good one (sorry about that), but here are some pictures and information that I hope will be helpful.

Asia City

Pirmasenser Str. 22, 67655 Kaiserslautern
Hours: M - F 0900-1830; Sat. 0900-1800

This is a small store on the west side of the pedestrian shopping area. I saw a sign that they sell fresh tofu. I also found a container of coconut oil for 3.50 euros, which seems to be a good deal. When I'm ready to make soap again, I'll probably stop by to purchase some. 

Karl-Marx-Straße 6 67655 Kaiserslautern‎
Hours: M-F 0900-1900; Sat. 0900-1700

Toward the middle of town is Orient. I've stopped in before and bought wasabi peanuts. I guess that's all that I can say as I don't usually eat/buy Asian food :)

Tam Asia
Karl-Marxstr.20, 67655 Kaiserslautern 
M-F 0900-1800; Sat. 0900-1600
Close to Orient is Tam Asia. This store seems to be the brightest and the largest of the three.


  1. My personal favorite is Tam Asia for they have the biggest range of asian food to choose from. (One shelf alone decidated to instant ramen ... :D)
    The staff is also very friendly and helpful, even with questions about cooking.
    And - one of the reasons I like this store most - they sell this incredibly sweet candy made from rice flour and a filling of Anko bean/green tea/peanut butter/etc mass called "Mochi".

  2. Thanks for adding the information! Mochi sounds really interesting. Maybe I'll have to pick up some to give it a try.

  3. Tam ist the shop with the most goods, most fresh and best Prices... the Owner speaks and understand many languages -- our favorid shop
