a new warm spring-feeling day lead us to a nearby asian grocery store... we stopped in...and our jaws dropped in amazement. fresh produce and herbs, an aquarium of fish, aisles of mouth-watering sauces, treats, and grains, and a multitude of frozen vegetables, animals and animal parts including fish (millions of kinds), whole hens and geese, many cow organs, and crab legs.
Jon's favorite item was REAL rice wine vinegar for about a dollar. Susan's favorite: big bag of sea salt for 5 bucks. And the duo's together-favorite: Hello Panda chocolate-filled mini cookies. (We also noticed the nice thing about the sweets is they're made with raw ingredients including cane sugar)!
The bundle of groceries at a regular corporate grocery store would have cost, we're guessing, $130. This trip, it cost us a whopping FIFTY dollars, plus we got advice on the mangos for free from the nice check-out lady.
We are SOOOOOO shopping there from now on!!!
