Ben’s Independent Grocer

For those due to host a Thanksgiving dinner or a Christmas party but dread the hours in the kitchen. Dread no more as Ben's Independent Grocer will change the way you shop and cook. This 50,000 sq ft. grocery store offers a wide variety of local and international goodies, ranging from fresh produce to dry goods. Fresh As Fresh Gets - Soil is no longer required for plants to thrive here. For RM4.50, you can enjoy a fresh head of Hydroponic Lettuce. Imagine grocery's fridge being replaced by rows of hydroponic system. That would truly revolutionize the way we shop for food.

Food for thought: Since no pesticides or herbicides are used, would you consider this an organic produce?
The Ginger Bread Man section is an excellent stand for homemade breads and pastries. I was loafed away and ended up buying a loaf of Rosemary & Olive Focaccia Bread and a Whole Grain Bread. My parents enjoyed it very much as both breads were dense and wholesome.

Pick up Cracking Pork Belly, Mousse of Goose Liver and Black Goose Foie Gras at S.Wine - the non halal section of Ben's Independent Grocer. There are a wide array of salami, pepperoni, proscuitto, sausages and hams at the freezer counter waiting to be bought and consumed.

The signage at Ben's is extremely cute and creative. The layout was well thought of and it has subtly integrated gourmet cafe and coffee counter inside the 50,000 sq ft. compound. Ben's Independent Grocer has earn another brownie points for the team, setting new standard to the Malaysia's supermarket scene. Long gone the dreadful preparation of Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas party.
