Quick Look

Walking past a Chinatown grocery, this is what I saw inside... I wish we could do "scratch and sniff" so you could also take in the interesting aromas.

This place is definitely not an American style super market, but seems to carry lots of the staple items that local Chinatown gourmets would want for their kitchens.

Wouldn't that be wonderful. Looks like one could go and buy all the ingredients for a wonderful stir fry.

A wonderful glimpse into another culture. So much of interest to be found and experienced in the senses when visiting markets like this.
I enjoy browsing the shelves and display cases of small ethnic markets like this.
Is that a mound of dried noodles on the left?
