"Asian Grocery Only"

By Kaitlyn Ellison

Asian Grocery Only is a side project started by Matt Manalo in March of 2019. He started documenting Asian grocery stores because of his enjoyment in buying and eating snacks from his hometown of Manila, Philippines and other neighboring countries in Asia. In comparison to big grocery stores, Manalo focuses on the uniqueness of every store. He has also received submissions from all over the US and around the world.
