Tasty shift for speciality business

ONE of the South Burnett's most popular speciality businesses has a new location.

After several years of establishing a stream of loyal customers in Haly St, Tiangge Asian Shop recently moved into a new premises at 179 Kingaroy St.

Owner of Tiangge Asian Shop, Rose Ariola, said she was excited about the new location that they moved into on October 2.

"We have a lot more people walk past here," she said.

"Most people that come in didn't know we existed before."

The speciality store has come a long way since initially setting up on December 1, 2012, in a shed behind the Shell service station.

Tiangge is a Filipino word for market and Mrs Ariola said there was a big population of Filipinos in the South Burnett.

"We have products from the Philippines and South East Asia, Thai, Taiwan, Singapore and Chinese products," she said.

"A lot of our products you will not find anywhere else locally," Mrs Ariola said.

Tiangge Asian Store has included some new additions with the change of address.

"When we were in Haly St we received a lot of interest for vegan and vegetarian products," she said.

"So that is a new line we will be targeting."

Mrs Ariola said there were certain products that customers always asked for.

"We always get enquiries for our spring roll wraps and some pre-made meals like pork buns," she said
