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.
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.
Not quite my cuisine!ReplyDelete
Argh. Some of that food is quite disgusting looking. A whole chicken,huh> Duck feet. Ew. Ha!ReplyDelete
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 MineReplyDelete
Crazy cool picks but the birds (duck and chicken) hanging around made me queasy :)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
