Touring Ethnic Markets

The other day when Greg and I had lunch downtown, we went and toured both an Asian, and Italian market. I love checking out all the good, and often times weird, stuff in these places! Attached are a couple of photos from the Asia Food Company. The "Pork Fu" is dried BBQ"d Pork Butt (just add water!) The Durian fruit has a rather tasty description, but I saw a guy almost puke when eating this on a show once because this thing is supposed to taste and smell awful! It is actually banned from public consumption is Thailand! The prices on the jasmine rice are a fraction of the $4-5/ lb you would pay in the "ethnic needs" aisle of the local grocery! Same with the Arborio rice in the Italian market "Gallucci's" I pity anyone who doesn't have access to these kind of places. I also love the local Mexican "Mercado." Freshly rendered "Manteca" is an essential in good tamales!

Wood, should come down some Saturday morning and we'll go to Pittsburgh's strip district. Good stuff there if you can avoid vomiting from all the Steeler's crap. Great sandwiches at Primanti brothers. Lot of ethnic stuff. Springtime is better...warmer...less Steelers crap.

Personally, I avoid eating anything that has FU in its name. I mean why take the chance?

I hear Trader Joes has Tri Tips and there is one in Wilmington, De.
Yes, they do. 202N just before the Penn line. They have them at the Marlton store too, on 73, if you ever head that way from Seaville.

Thailand is a major exporter of durians. They aren't banned from public consumption exactly but in many places there (and in some other southeast Asia countries) they are banned in specific public areas like train stations, some parks, and places frequented by tourists. They're tasty.

Yes. And they should be shooting Rocky 6 now. There was a call for extras in November with shooting supposed to start soon after. Can you believe it's been like 30 years since the first one?

Have to be a Saturday road trip Woody...you'd like it. Only about 50 minutes or so from my house. Great places for fresh bread, great coffees, biscotti, olives, cheeses, open fresh fish market(Wholey's), chinese place like you had pics of, Italian foods, India foods, etc. The place that had the India foods had some dry soup packets. A few years ago I found one that was...honest God...Cock Soup. I bought 2 packs and gave one each to my brothers for Christmas that year. We got a good laugh out of it...typical brotherly love...lol

Check out www.wholey.com and take the tour.

Primanti's in the strip is a lot different than the other locations...more authentic and has a sense of history. Great samiches though. Pickels are the best. I always go for the corned beef. I've heard the pastrami is great too.
