Recently, we are hearing more and more that scientists have proved that drinking vinegar is healthy, especially for your blood vessels and circulation. Undoubtedly, that is music to ears for vinegar retailers like the Shan Xi Vinegar Supermarket.
This is a specialty store that sells vinegar from the Shan Xin province, well known for its sweet-tasting vinegar. This recently opened store in the Xuan Wu district is easy to spot, with its bright red walls and traditional paper-cut art works decorating the windows¡£
The featured products, of course, are the vinegars. There are several kinds of vinegar inside, with different brand names, different sizes, and different types of packaging. For cooking, I suggest the normal vinegar made of grains . For use as a dipping sauce, I suggest the fruit vinegar made of lemon, apple or pear. Most bottles cost RMB 5 to RMB 30.
In addition to vinegar products, the store also offers other Shan Xi specialty goods£¬like pear juice, walnuts, millets, and local liquor.
The owner of this store is an easy-going guy. "We are part of a big chain, with many outlets in Beijing. I strongly vouch for the quality of our products."
