Located off Second Ring Road in the West of Chengdu, Metro has for years been a go-to place to Chengdu expats to source difficult to find food items. Items that are nearly impossible to find in other locations are in large quantities at Metro, like wheels of cheese, imported beer kegs, and Sriracha hot sauce.
Many of the items are Metro are available in bulk quantities, similar to overseas bulk retailers like Costco.
One current problem with Metro is that due to its location along Second Ring Road construction, this location is difficult to access via taxi. Current estimates put this problem being amended toward the fall of 2012.
Prices tend to be very reasonable at Metro, especially considering that so many of the items here aren’t available anywhere else.
