I just love a good Grocery store
My Mother’s Day celebration was going to Bamboo Garden Restaurant in Sunset Park. A serious local dim sum spot where the Chinese community in the area gathers. A big family day. I particularly loved the large screen that looms over the main dining room (there is another one) that shares the dishes making its way through the room and the price….of course, all in Chinese. What dialect of Chinese, I am not sure.
All and all we had 19 dishes. I won’t inundate you with them all but share a few highlights. Shrimp dumplings.
Cream filled buns
And a sesame treat.
Afterward, we walked across the street to the food court connected to the grocery store, Fei Long Market. We had been there a few years ago but I never walked into the grocery store. I love a good grocery store. It confirms my belief that brick and mortar just needs to be rethought. Seeing what is on the shelves says something about the community who shops there.
Going into a grocery store wherever I travel is always a highlight. This particular one is filled with products that are definitely not at my local grocery store. The art of discovery is one of the best parts.
