food adventure

last week andrew and i went on an excursion to buford highway which is known in atlanta as THE place for ethnic food. we had tacos at taco veloz-yum very simple (andrew had a beef tongue taco-i couldn't watch) we also shared a bowl of noodles at chef liu and dumplings very tasty. prior to that we wandered the isles of the buford highway farmers market-what a place-well worth the drive

andrew checks out the hot sauce section-LOTS to chose from
an aloe leaf

chayote thorn-no idea what this is, was in the fruit section

dorian fruit-was an ingredient on chopped once

jack fruit-probably should have used a hand to give an idea of scale-these are larger than a cantaloupe, but smaller than a watermelon

the mushroom selection was amazing-too bad andrew doesn't like the fun-gi (guy)
a very pretty parrot fish-the seafood section was pretty impressive-lots of fish i'd never heard of

what we bought-loved finding a very small can of coconut milk-not sure what i'll do with it yet- there were some very good prices on a lot of things here. if you are looking for asian ingredients this is definitely the place.  our day wrapped up with a quick stop at cast on cottage to get some yarn for 2 sweaters (thank to mary for her help!) it was fun seeing the other ladies too. i took andrew on a quick tour of the area of roswell where i grew up-then home for shrimp enchiladas- look forward to more of these this summer.
