When you approach Woo Sang, you notice a different type of atmosphere. While other supermarkets had background noise from staff and shoppers, this one has a radio station blaring pop music in the doorway. Hairy-looking, little red balls of fresh lychee immediately catch your eye but at £6.50 a portion, it’s easy to keep on walking.
Towards the back of the store, the deserted aisles become darker and almost haunting, but then you see you can take home fortune cookies for 99p, which makes everything seem better.
