Carrefour – Tongzilin

Chengdu features nearly half a dozen Carrefour locations but this is one of the first ones. Located in the Tongzilin neighborhood, Carrefour has for years been the go-to location to source imported food items and otherwise difficult to find products like German chocolate, American liquor, or dairy products like cheese and yoghurt.


Imported items at Carrefour can carry an expensive premium, but for the most part everything in Carrefour is reasonably priced. Items like fruit, vegetables, and meat carry a higher price in Carrefour than in other markets around the city, but the argument goes that Carrefour selects higher quality items. The second floor of Carrefour sells home use products but many of these items can be found at places like Ikea for lower price and higher quality than you’ll find at Carrefour.

    The import food section is pretty good, some items you can’t find in other places. At this carrefour I usually pick up some tins of soup, soft taco shells (available elsewhere, cheaper here), nacho chips (plain ones for salsa/cheese on top) and they usually have a couple brands, and sometimes other types of chips or snacks. Their cheese selection is alright, too.
