My love for Asian Markets

Been born and raise in Puerto Rico, growing up never had the opportunity to see or buy at an Asian Market, because at that time were not available.  But here in USA, I could easily spend hours wandering at the isles of any good Asian Market.  Is a like a fascination to look at the endless display of rice, hot sauces, vinegar, noodles, tea, coffee, produce, fish and meat counter.  You will find such a great variety of foods almost impossible to get at any other place.  Just by looking  at the beautiful packing, were most of then are  a work of art, will be enough to entice me to buy.  I always go back for the delicious Vietnamese coffee, but today also got jumbo tangerines, fried pork skin, big taro or malanga, green plantain, and jumbo shrimps. Took some pictures of other interesting products that I had never seen of taste before.

Cuando me criaba en Puerto Rico, nunca tuve la oportunidad de visitar un mercado asiatico, porque sencillamente no existian. Hoy en dia viviendo en EE.UU., no se porque tengo esta fascinacion de ir a los mercados asiaticos y pasearme por horas por los pasillos, imaginando la confeccion de platos con la variedad de productos, leyendo lo poco que pueda entender, pues aunque algunos tienen la traduccion al ingles, realmente es poca la informacion de como y para que usarlo.  De todas formas me lo disfruto.  Por lo regular voy a comprar cafe vietnames instantaneo, pero hoy ademas compre: chicharones de cerdo, camarones gigantes, chinas mandarinas gigantes, malanga o big taro y unas galletitas dulces de almendras.  Aqui les muestro algunos productos que aun no he probado o usado en alguna receta, aunque si he usado la malanga, pero me sorprendio la calidad y el precio por libra.
