The first Texas location of Seafood City Supermarket, a grocer selling Filipino food as well as beauty products and speciality items, opened in Sugar Land on Dec. 14.

The details

Located off the Southwest Freeway, near the First Colony Commons shopping center, the grocer now occupies what used to be Conn's furniture store. To celebrate its Houston-area arrival, Seafood City is promoting a grand opening sale through Dec. 20 on some of its grocery items.

The Seafood City brand blends grocery and restaurant concepts by providing ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat meals as well as fast-food eateries within its stores, in addition to canned goods, fresh meat, and seafood and produce bought directly from suppliers in the Philippines.

What's special about it?

According to the store's website, Filipino fare can be defined through its fusion of recipes, ingredients and cooking styles traced from other parts of the region, such as Malaysia, China, Spain and other neighboring countries.

Uniquely Filipino foods, including banana ketchup, chicharon, bagnet, lumpia and ube pastries, will be available at the market.
