Absolutely Asian Grocery

The sign on the front proclaims it as "Absolutely Asian Grocery" but the yellow pages listing calls it "Absolutely Asian Delicatessen and Lotteries". The latter is probably more accurate as various lottery and betting options were clearly available and it did not look like the normal Asian Grocery with shelves of goods unrecognisable to western eyes. It was at 531 Marion Road in South Plympton.

Interestingly enough this shop had a functioning espresso machine and was happy to make your reviewer a hot chocolate. The drink came in huge ceramic cup. It was finished with a creamy froth and a liberal sprinkling of chocolate powder. This was not a particularly dark chocolate flavour but it was rich enough and was a good long drink for only $3.50. The friendly staff were happy for your reviewer to read the paper while sipping on the drink while waiting for time to pass.
