February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

[ Edited ]

The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included:

 

SAM_1126.JPG^Large flat rate box JAM-PACKED with goodies!

 

SAM_1127.JPG^Seaweed.

 

SAM_1129.JPG^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies.

 

SAM_1131.JPG^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY!

 

SAM_1132.JPG^Various crackers/biscuits/pies.

 SAM_1133.JPG

^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave).

 

SAM_1134.JPG^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink.

 

Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?

Have you tried Ramune?! Japanese soda? With a marble in it? SOOOO good. AND lychee Calpico. Strawberry Calpico is my least favorite. I like original, mango and lychee! AND MILK CANDY!

Re: February Food Haul From MYchoi to Me! :)

I always get the Japanese soda when I get sushi! Especially because they have melon flavor... I LOVE all things melon! :smileyhappy: I've never had lychee everything so I was unsure whether or not to get that or the strawberry. I usually like strawberry things so I thought I'd give it a try.

Killahbabe!  Next time you're in PGH, hit the Strip.  We do most of our shopping there since it's just a few miles from home.  Lotus Foods and Sambok are the best.  Sambok for Korean things (homemade banchan and cabbage and radish kimchi!), and Lotus for a bunch of different things, including a lot of fresh fruit (like durian, dragon fruit) and veg, freshly made tofu, and pastries/baked goods that come from a bakery in NYC (whole green tea jelly rolls, coconut buns, baguettes).  Lots of snack foods, too.  These two nearly fill the void left from Super H Mart.

 

And, if you've never been to Wholey's for sushi, it's a must.  Andy's Sushi Bar is so good and such a fun experience ... Andy's a doll and a flirt and will give you things to nibble on while he's making your rolls ... The Strip roll is awesome.

Now I know where I'm going on my next free weekend! :smileyhappy: Thanks so much for the idea, Quotidianus! I only thought Pitt had the "Oriental Market" by Ross Park and they didn't have any of the fun goodies I love. :smileysad: I'll definitely be going to check out these places ASAP! :smileyvery-happy:

When I first moved to Pittsburgh, I moved into the suburbs.  Within three months I moved into the city (I can do urban or rural, not in between).  There's so much going on!  If you do go to the Strip on a weekend, make sure you hit Pittsburgh Public Market.  You can do a beer tasting at East End Brewing Company's stall (a dollar a taste, which is about four ounces of liquid amazement), Crested Duck has amazing charcuterie and artisanal cheeses, and Clarion River Organics has some gorgeous and unique produce (I love them, they introduced me to ramps!).

Hope you didn't eat it all in one sitting Killah! Although, I wouldn't blame you if you did, everything looks delicious :smileyhappy:

 

I'm lucky to be close to a few Asian markets, I'll have to get me some green tea pocky this weekend!
