    My haul from the market

Grocery stores are adventures, and one of my favorites is Joong Boo Market on Kimball. It’s a place to find seafood (squid! black tiger shrimp! live crams!), grab a quick meal from the snack shop, or even browse the dry goods market for rice cookers, stuffed animals or knick-knacks. The snack food aisles at Asian grocery stores are such a relief to browse through after the undifferentiated potato chip-nacho-pretzel experience in most American grocery stores. Shrimp-flavored rice chips? Load me up. Taro cream wafers? Sure, I’ll give a try. I made it out of there with all the ingredients for an awesome stir-fry and enough desserts to send me into sugar-shock!

Joong Boo Market Joong Boo Market is tucked under the highway and a little off the beaten path, but well worth adding into your neighborhood grocery rotation.

  1. Oooh, I love Joong Boo! I used to live just south of there on Kimball, and now I’m on the other side of town but I’ve been thinking I need to venture back there! Thanks for the reminder! ^_^
