Saturday Snapshot

West Metro Mommy Reads

Saturday Snapshots is hosted by West Metro Mommy


July 2014 - Toronto ON


We went to T and T, an Asian grocery chain last weekend.
The initial store in Vancover made its mandate to provide Asian immigrants access to their home foods in a modern environment. 
Today you will find all nationalities perusing the aisles.

Shopping here is like a journey through parts of Asia as we find fresh mangoes from the Philippines, crispy snacks from Japan, sauces from Hong Kong, noodles from Taiwan, spices from Thailand and a variety of flavours from China and other Asian countries.

Duck Gizzards

BBQ duck counter - we bought half a duck for dinner.






Duck Feet

Chicken with the head attached


Silkie chicken - I had to google this. The Silkie (sometimes alternatively spelled Silky) is a breed of chicken named for its atypically fluffy plumage, which is said to feel like silk. The breed has several other unusual qualities, such as black skin and bones, blue earlobes, and five toes on each foot, whereas most chickens only have four.

Fish Balls

Lots and lots of good stuff on the shelves.

  2. Always an adventure to see what other cultures consider comfort food. Lol. Thanks for the trip. I don't why we never eat duck at home, only in France. Here's Mine

  4. What a delightful topic for today's post! We have a huge Asian grocery not far from us named Uwajimaya, which is always a delight to visit. They have the freshest seafood around.

  5. I love a trip to an Asian grocery as well, there is always so much of interest on the shelves even if you don't know what to do with some of it- or you don't want to do anything with it- I'm afraid that duck gizzards and chickens feet are beyond me.
