The Chinese Cultural Center located on 44th Street just south of the 202, sticks out like a Purple bunny in a pile of boring goats. So my curiosity got the best of me and I made ...

The 99 Market grocery store is about as good as it gets with the CCC. The restaurants are not that good... and accessibility stinks.

COFCO Chinese Cultural Center: Something Special 8/24/2010

COFCO Chinese Cultural Center is located downtown. It is not to far of a drive, even if you are coming from Chandler, Arizona. It is easy to locate because you can see the large buildings and the unique architecture of the center, Once you arrive you can go through any shop, restaurant, market, or just simply walk around and enjoy the nature the center offers. One of the shops i went to was called The Oriental Factory Direct. On the outside it looks like a tiny plant shop but as you walk in you can grasp a better idea of all the artifacts they have displayed for customers to purchase. This shop has everything from Chinese toe separated sandals to sharp metal swords. The best thing about this shop is that it's small, calming, and the owner is extremely friendly. Nest is Ranch Market. On the outside it looks like your average grocery store but as you walk inside you instantly notice the unique smells, produce, and items being sold here. It is set up like most grocery stores, so it is easy to navigate yourself through. The nicest thing about this market is that they offer items that you would never find in a grocery store, such as unique fruits, baby octopus, and specialty drinks and candy. These are only a few of the things they sell. The only down side to this market is that it smells strongly of fish, because of their fresh meats. My favorite thing of the entire center is the Chinese Cultural Botanical Garden. The garden is set up as a little journey filled with stone pathways, architectural statues, and places to sit down, all surrounding a large central Koi pond. The pond is filled with vibrant green lily pads, large marble statues, and beautiful fountains. The garden is a calm environment with beautiful architecture and nature. Every where you walk along the path you can read the plaques that teach you about the architecture you are observing. The botanical garden is calming and stunning. The only thing I suggest is to go when it is nice and cool outside. Because it is outside, you don't want to be walking around trying to enjoy yourself in 100 degree weather. Overall The COFCO Chinese Cultural Center is an extremely unique experience. There are numerous shops, restaurants, and places to go and explore whenever you feel like it. It is completely free to go to it and you if you want, you can always bring a little extra money to purchase a souvenir. more

Cofco Chinese Cultural Center 8/24/2010

My experience at the Chinese cultural center began in the supermarket called Ranch Market. The inside of the store basically looked like an Albertson's or Basha's but was filled with strange and interesting foods from China. Unlike a normal supermarket this market had more fresh foods and meat. Even though the store smelled like a petsmart it was a neat experience to see all sorts of new foods and the ways they are sold. more

Unique shopping and dinning experience 6/13/2006

The Chinese Cultural Center located on 44th Street just south of the 202, sticks out like a Purple bunny in a pile of boring goats. So my curiosity got the best of me and I made a fast Right turn off of 44th street onto E. Cofco Center Blvd. I found plenty of easy parking and an amazing shopping experience. I started at the CommUnity Market Cafe, a tiny little coffee, breakfast lunch thing that serves the best Fair Trade Coffee I have tasted in Phoenix. Next we went into a fun gift shop right next door full of Chinese oriented (no pun intended) items from incense to Samuri Knifes, shoes, and clothing. And of course, we couldn't walk out without purchasing a $1.95 silk embroidered fan. Good thing to have while in Phoenix in the summer. Next we hit the Chinese Grocery store and spent an hour cruising the isles filled with every chinese related food item you could imagine, including fresh still alive eel, and crabs. Frozen pigs feet and yes, fortune cookies. The prices were surprisingly reasonable. I came out of there $29.00 down but had five bags full of sauces, noodles and other interesting items. Pros: Interesting, unique shopping experience Cons: Couldn't find any Cons more
