I spent a few wonderful hours yesterday perusing T&T Supermarket with a good friend. It really got my creativity rolling to check out so many new ingredients. Sadly, I didn’t find any shiso, which was one of the things I needed for a Pork-Wrapped Egg Onigiri that I wanted to try. I may have to improvise, but that’s nothing new.
As is our wont, we had to stop by the hot foods area (a canteen, really) in the store for some lunch. I grabbed an assortment of foods from the hot buffet, including deep-fried octopus, salt and pepper pork, sweet and sour pork, General Tso chicken, pan-fried pork dumplings, and breaded, deep-fried fish — with a side of rice, of course! Not necessarily the healthiest lunch, but definitely enjoyable. My fave was definitely the octopus.
