Jason's at Taipei 101 has high priced sour cream in small containers.

Put a picture of Taiwan's vice president next to a pint of UHT cream. In a mere 4.7 minutes, it will be sour cream. :)

You can find sour cream at the Orange Mart in B1 FE21, and the one close to Science Park, just of Guangfu Road.

Where I can get sour cream in Taipei? And hopefully not have to venture into Tianmu? :wink:

I wouldn't rely on Wellcome -- they only sometimes have any. The other's posted by AWOL are kosher. What he means by Far Eastern is a place in the basement of that mall called City Super.

Please run a Search before posting, as the question may have already been answered (numerous times in this case).

Costco's sour cream tubs are about NT$300+ and are HUGE. You'd better plan on adding the stuff to everything you make for the next month if you buy it there. :wink:

EDIT: Just checked today -- they're NT$289 for 3 lbs.

First, this has come up again and again. You should search before posting. Second, your subject line sucks. "Where can I find sour cream in Taipei (not Tianmu)?" is a billion times better. :p

How long would it keep for, DB?

We bought that giant tub about 2 weeks ago and it expires in mid-March, so I really have to try to use it or it will go bad. I recommend going with a friend and splitting it. Does anyone know if sour cream freezes well? Anyway, I could be off on the price; it might have been more, like $450, which is what two others posted. And someone said it lasts 3 months, but of course you want to check the expiry date.

Here are the locations I culled from other posts:
