I found heaven-on-earth yesterday~

My dad took me to the new Asian market that’s by his work yesterday!!! The same one where he bought me mochi ice cream~

Oh my gosh, I was expecting some small, family-run business that had a small selection of Asian products that were sort-of stale, but noooooooooooo, I found myself in the middle of a cornucopia of almost every type of Asian ingredient possible.

To demonstrate, here is a real photo of me yesterday:

It was like the hallelujah chorus was singing to me from the heavens above. It was beautiful.

AND CHEAP MY GOSH. LOOK AT ALL THE STUFF I BOUGHT!!!

Please excuse the crappy camera quality, BUT LOOK AT ALL OF THIS STUFF!! AND IT ONLY COST $30!! That may seem like a lot, but it can cost a lot more to get good Asian ingredients.

Here’s a list of what’s in the picture:

  1. Tapioca pearls
  2. Black sesame mochi
  3. Agar agar
  4. 2 boxes of mochiko
  5. Hi-Chew gum (green apple)
  6. A can of sliced water chestnuts
  7. Sesame oil
  8. Pickled ginger
  9. A can of milk tea
  10. A can of tamarind drink
  11. A bottle of Ramune
  12. Somen noodles
  13. Tofu
  14. Hondashi

Oh? Am I missing something. Oh yes, I wouldn’t want to forget anything! Here it is!

HOLY SHIT. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT IS???? IT’S A FIRE-TRUCKING DRAGON FRUIT, BITCHES.

I could not believe that had these!! They also had durian, but I wasn’t interest in buying any stink-fruit.

They have a lot of ingredients that I can’t get at other stores, so it’s great to know there’s a place I can go when I need duck or quail eggs. And the best part was that everything was super-cheap compared to other stores! I’m definitely going to go back some time soon!
