This weekend we took a trip to Eden Center so of course I had to stop in the grocery stores and delis to stock up. Above we have lemongrass, some other greens I can't remember what they're called.
The only place I've been able to find shredded green papaya. Perfect for a green papaya salad.
Of course I had to get some bubble tea. Well it's really a strawberry smoothie with tapioca pearls and an iced coffee with pearls. Vietnamese coffee is my favorite. I'm not sure what brand of coffee they used but it hit the spot!
Fast food, Vietnamese style! Besides banh mi, of course. There's fried rice, noodle dishes, papaya salads and tons of sweets!
Do you shop at an Asian grocery store? What do you like to purchase there?
