Bintang Supermarket in Legian – a quick tour
Bintang Supermarket is in the heart of Legian (actually, it’s really on the border of Seminyak) and is the place everyone, and I do mean everyone, shops for all their food supplies and goodies, including alcohol, to take back to their Villa in Legian.
It’s so popular that people from other parts of the island make their way here just for the experience and the value for money.
There are heaps of other supermarkets such as Popular, Carrefour and Pepito, but Bintang supermarket outshines them when it comes to the range and variety of goods and products they have on offer.
At first, as you enter the doors, it might seem like a normal smallish supermarket, but the place keeps on going. It’s jam-packed with absolutely everything you could ever want for food, groceries, household supplies, toys, home care, pet care, cakes, sim cards, mobile phones, anything you can think of, it is there. There are loads of staff on hand so the queues do not get too large, which can happen on the weekend as people begin to stock up for dinner parties and their weekly shopping.
As you would expect, the vibe here is Asian, unlike other supermarkets that have become too homogenous and cookie cutter. Bintang supermarket has a character all its own, which is why it’s so much loved by locals, ex-pats and tourists.
So if you’re preparing for that special dinner party, just want to impress the family with your cooking skills, or even whipping up a quick BBQ for the kids and family, Bintang Supermarket will have everything you need and probably more.
There is even fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish section with loads of frozen foods. The supermarket is in an area with parking and other restaurants so you can have a bite to eat before you go shopping. Finding the place is easy as it’s along the famous shopping strip Jalan Raya Seminyak opposite the popular Warung Mades and near the intersection of Jalan Nakula. The hours of opening are 7 am till around 10 pm, which should give you ample time to get there and stock up. So if you wondering where you can buy groceries in Seminyak or Legian, head to the one and only Bintang Supermarket.
