Located in a nearly six-acre space at the edge of Chinatown, many refer to LAX-C as the “Thai Costco” - but maybe it should be the other way around? A grocery store, wholesale market, and restaurant supply destination, you could name almost anything in the world and LAX-C probably has it. Need fresh produce? LAX’s got it. Regional Thai herbs? Check. What about Asian beauty products, coconut milk by the gallon, or an $8,000 religious statue? Yes, yes, and, if you can believe it, yes. There aren’t many grocery stores we’d break our lease for, but if we could move into LAX-C tomorrow, we would.
