This market has all types of specialty foods and ingredients for all types of Asian (and some European) cooking. Yes, the market does have an odor to it. It is why I can't purchase fresh meat/seafood/fish from there. But all of their packaged and canned...More

Finally got what the dried shrimp I needed that too in 3 types. Well stocked with food from atleast 10 cities around the world. Check out the unique washroom key at customer service counter. Plenty of parking.

Ta Lin is one of my favorite places to shop for food in Abq. Always something interesting and different to explore and taste. Whenever I wander the aisles, I always feel like I'm taking a journey around the world.
