One of my all time favorite places to visit is the local Asian market. I enjoy all Asian food that I've tried so far: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Malaysian ( and of course, my own Filipino). Puttering around the market brings back memories of meals I've had in the past, peaks my curiosity for all those packages written in languages I can't read. I'm an adventurous type when it comes to food. I'll try anything at least once.
My main weakness is the snack aisle. A stroll down there always reminds me of my friend Chiasui. She would always come to rehearsals with all sorts of goodies she picked up at some Asian store. Then, I would always get hooked . .and then be unable to find them again because I couldn't recognize the packaging!
My latest addiction from the store is a honey seaweed flavored cracker. Kind of sweet and savory at the same time. My husband hates them, but I can't seem to get enough of them!
I miss Chiasui. She had to go back to Taiwan because her visa ran out. I hope she comes back to NY soon. She's always a fun pal to go anywhere and eat, and chat with.
