Food Finds at Metro Gaisano Supermarket

Metro Gaisano supermarket is located at Market! Market! at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. It has the widest selection of imported products from the USA, Canada and Australia among all the supermarkets in Manila. If there’s something you need no matter how sure you are that you won’t find it try going to Metro supermarket. You will be surprised.

Here are just some of the items that caught my attention. Passion Pasta is a line of gourmet pasta from Australia. According to their web site, it’s the ultimate air-dried small batch laminated pasta that cooks in 3 minutes.

It’s not cheap. I bought the porcini mushroom linguini which costs P187.25 for 250 grams. Other brands of imported pasta cost P60-100 for 500 grams. I haven’t cooked it. But when I do I’ll do a follow up post on how it tastes.

They also have all kinds of food and fruits in the freezer section. Raspberries, cherries and even blackberries are just some of the ones featured here.

They also have a wide array of healthy food such as steel cut oats and cereals. These cost much cheaper than those at Healthy Option.

They also have McCann Irish steel cut oats which is one of the best in the world (so they say). My favorite healthy cereal is Kashi Go Lean which has high fiber and low fat and tastes good. They sell for P272 a box at Metro and P450 at Healthy Options. Go Lean Crunch is also good but has less fiber and a little more fat.

You should see their regular cereal aisle. You’d think you were in a supermarket in the USA. They have all the kiddie cereals too.

Metro is the only place that carries Sweet Serenity flavored syrups for coffee or tea. This a local product that can compete with those imported and expensive syrups.

They also have an almost complete variety of Arnott’s cookies from Australia. When it’s in stock you have to buy this Tim Tam balls in regular or mint flavor. It’s addicting and so yummy.

The prices of their local goods are higher than the other supermarkets. But the price of the imported goods are reasonable. Next time you’re at the Fort swing by Metro supermarket and make a dent in your budget.

  1. Do you happen to have belachan, the Malaysian shrimp paste. In the Bicol region, it is called dinailan or balaw.  I’ve been raring to cook Bicol and Malaysian dishes with it.
