The dawn of 2018 saw the opening of the 11th YATA supermarket in Hong Kong at Metroplaza in Kwai Fong. This latest outlet joins other YATA supermarkets at New Town Plaza in Sha Tin, Tai Po Mega Mall, Tsuen Wan Plaza, Mikiki in San Po Kong, V city in Tuen Mun, MOKO in Mong Kok, apm in Kowloon East, East Point City in Tseung Kwan O, YOHO MALL in Yuen Long, and Hong Kong Plaza in Sai Wan.
The YATA supermarket in Kwai Fong has more than 15,000 sq. ft. of floor space, and its interior design was inspired by aspects of nature. YATA's main offerings are high-end Japanese and Western foods. Kidori, a Japanese dining outlet, is famed for its deep-fried food skewers in Tsukiji style, and now sells 15-inch long, fried chicken skewers with gold leaf (limited time only). Shaka Shaka Chikuwa thrills patrons with crispy yet tender tastes of Kyoto. The “A-1 BAKERY with Deli” has delectable food options as well such as fresh salads, lunch boxes, and juicy hamburgers that are cooked to order, an ideal option for the health-conscious.
Other than the two food outlets mentioned above, there are also three specially curated corners in the supermarket that provide customers with even more quality options. First, there is the century-old Maison Brémond 1830 from Europe that sells exquisite groceries like handmade olive oils, black vinegars, sardines in oil and much more from Provence in southern France. In addition, there is Whittard, which specializes in English tea, refreshing fruit teas, and English butter shortbreads. Last but not least, is the trendy healthy zone of '3 Low 1 High' foods with smart choice foods from Europe, the United States, and Japan that are low in salt and sugar, hypoallergenic, and high in nutrition. These foods are giving rise to new culinary inspirations for urbanites who seek healthier lifestyles.
To celebrate YATA Kwai Fong Store opening, YATA collaborates with Metroplaza to hold the YATA x Kyoto Fair in the mall's atrium starting from 19th February.
