On the same day that we all went to Cinnamon, Foodeater and I stopped at an Asian market in her neighborhood. You see, I have a huge Asian market/indoor mini-mall less than a mile from my house and I've been too intimidated to go in. Foodeater, being an expert Asian market shopper, volunteered to take me to a smaller market so I wouldn't be intimidated anymore. In case you weren't already aware, Foodeater rocks! We got all sorts of cool stuff and most of it was extremely inexpensive. I bought some sweets, including the delicious mochi pictured above (they had red bean filling, sesame filling, and peanut butter filling, from left to right), some chewy palm seed candies that were like unflavored gummy bears, and soft blocks of paste made up of beans, coconut milk, and sugar. Of course, I bought other wonderful things, like Genmaicha brown rice tea, which has a wonderful smoky brown rice flavor, canned jackfruit, and hot sauce.
Hopefully, I'll buck up and go to the big Asian supermarket soon now that I have my first experience under my belt. :)
