Super 88 is a massive asian food court with everything from indian food to vietnamese sandwiches. My personal favorite is the sandwich station which offers Ban-mi sandwiches for $3.50. Make sure to have cash because the minimum for a credit card is $5.

If you have never been but enjoy Asian food and cooking, then this is one place that you should experience at least once In terms of size and scope, this place has a lot to offer. From produce, to meat, to fish, to everything in between, chances are you will find something that you have always wanted/wanted to try. My personal favorite section is the row of freezers filled with dumplings and steamed buns. In the in between isles. you will find noodles, sauces, spices, snacks, desserts, and other items to line your pantry with. The scope of their selection is impressive but can be overwhelming. However, be warned, the people who work there do not speak the best English so you might have to wander a bit if you are looking for a particular item. I asked three different staffers where I could find wanton wrappers (they are along the left hand side in the same section as the tofu) but they all looked at me and shook their heads. Prices wise, some things are a better deal then others. My boyfriend did pretty well with purchasing meat and seafood but then things like Fish Sauce were a bit too pricey in my opinion. I did splurge and buy some decorative chopsticks for my apartment. A pack of ten or twelve for $4? Sure! This place does smell, kind of like dead chicken. After an hour there, I wasn't feeling too well; that smell just really didn't sit right with me. However, the cashiers are very quick and you if you go in with a plan, you could be out in fifteen minutes. I will come back to Super 88 but next time, I am going with a shopping list. Despite the three star rating, this place is really the best Asian market I've ever been to.

They do carry some hard to find items, but their prices are actually pretty meh, my local Market Basket actually undersells them on stuff like fish sauce...go figure! Guess they are trying to capitalize on their central location and the hoards of college students around. The food court is similarly so-so, prices are not as good as they should be for a food court, and quality is so-so. But again, it's all about supply and demand...there simply isn't much competition nearby so they take full advantage.

I love going here for all my Asian groceries, but it's also convenient to pick up to-go dinners (especially when I want small different things).

I like this place because you can find all sorts of great ingredients (that are hard to find at most stores) if you want to get creative in the kitchen. However I had a terrible customer service experience today. I asked the woman checking me out how much something was, and I asked her twice more to repeat it because I couldn't understand her. I have worked in customer service before so I know how to treat store employees and was not rude to her in any way. She got quite angry and started to purposefully throw my all of items once she rung them up. I then wasn't able to locate where my total purchase price was, so I hesitated for a few seconds while trying to decide what form of payment to use. She shook her head, laughed at me, and forcefully banged on one of the screens at the counter. This experience left me feeling as though she thought I was stupid American, and it has seriously deterred me from returning. I will instead be taking my business to the smaller family stores in Allston near Brighton and Harvard Ave where I have had previous excellent experiences.

Visiting Super 88 in Brighton is an experience that everyone should try at least once. The building houses both an Asian supermarket, as well as a variety of small restaurants set up like a small food court. The supermarket is fairly large and carries a variety of items that you won't find in your local stop and shop market. The layout is fairly straight forward, however there aren't really any staff their to help you if you can't find something. The cashiers seem to be the only ones working in the store. The food court area has some great quick restaurants, including a great place to get some bubble tea. The seating arrangement isn't the best, and you will deal with a fair amount of noise and people moving around as they get their food. I would recommend coming for a quick bite, but don't expect a date night at Super 88.

This place was disappointing, I was excited to find a big market on the T but this didn't cut it. The place is big but holds the variety of what a small market would hold, even less, I find stuff I was looking for at Jia Ho in Chinatown which is a quarter of the size but not here. Prices are more expensive too.

There are an array of asian stalls, dim-sum, Korean, indian, bubble tea. The one ppace in Boston you can ge curried goat and bim bim bop 10 feet from each other! Atmosphere is like a cafeteria located in a university (not a fancy school either!) bur soups, noodle bowls, roast duck, dumplings are all available without the parking problem of Chinatown. Can run down the lobby and pick up almost any asian grocery item available in Boston too!
