Mini Adventure: Hong Kong Market

We have several Asian grocery stores around town, and they have all kinds of awesome and weird stuff. I like to go get different foods and try them out.

I haven’t tried this one, but I thought the label was funny:

I think these are durians. Each of these is significantly larger than a football, and very hard. I’m thinking about getting one, cracking it open, and trying to make bowls! We’ll see though.

These are duck eggs that they dye to differentiate from normal eggs. That shade of dye can’t be healthy.

I love pho (pronounced fuh, according to my Vietnamese friends). Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup with a very distinctive broth, and usually with beef and herbs in it. When I found pho bouillon at the store I had to try it.

I got some rice noodles to go in it.

It came out pretty good, but it didn’t taste the same as what I was looking for. Pho at a Vietnamese restaurant is usually about $5 for a bowl the size of a basketball, so it’s worth it to go out and let the professionals handle the soup making.

I hope you all enjoy the massive amount of photos! Now that I can upload, I have a ton saved up to share!
