Flanked by pho shops and an international buffet, the Pacific Ocean Market Place in Broomfield is a virtual wellspring of all things Asian. In the scrubbed-clean, well-stocked supermarket, everything from golden brown steamed pork buns to piles of fresh durian, jackfruit, and lychees to rows of fresh Pan-Asian vegetables make shopping for Eastern specialties a snap.
An absolute must in every shopping cart is a cut of house-roasted or barbecued pork and Pi Pa duck. The crispy-skinned slabs of salty pork belly, succulent whole-roasted ducks (with just a hint of star anise), and tangy, fire-engine red pork spareribs are destined to turn any dinner into a special event.
Tip: Pacific Ocean Market Place also offers spectacular deals on live Dungeness crab, clams, and lobsters.
