I started shopping at Jungle Jims nearly 25 years ago and its been exciting to watch the Jungle grow into what it is today. Back in the early 1980s, the store could be described as a great produce stand with a good deli and wine shop; and the only place to go for asian food items like bok choy, lemon grass, fresh ginger, bulk rice, etc.--that today we take for granted because they can be found in most any grocery store. My daughter, who was only a few years old, loved to stop and listen to the singing Elvis gorilla. Since that time, Jungles has added food sections for almost every ethnic group, expanded its deli counter to possibly the size of the original store to include a vast selection of gourmet cheeses, meats, olive bar and bakery. The wine department is now almost a store in itself. If you cannot find what you need, just let someone know, and they will make sure to get it for you on your next stop. Also, you can't beat Jungle's prices for gourmet food items--I've been to many gourmet shops and the Jungle beats everyone's prices. Although I live in Chicago now and have the opportunity to shop at many great ethnic groceries, I still stop by Jungles anytime I am in Cincinnati.
Pros: Great selection of items, prices good
Cons: Grab a map of the store upon entering, or you might have difficulty
