Honestly, we weren’t expecting much. So, we were very happily surprised with these. They’re a bit like a Twinkie. But, these are so much better than a cloyingly sweet, greasy (paste-y) cream filled twinkie. They’re softer, fluffier, less greasy, and just all around tastier. We actually want to eat these. […]
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Four large sandwich cookies for $4.99, these were soft, sweet and filled with a super sweet buttercream frosting… not a marshmallow filling. We were really hoping for marshmallow.
Pecan Hand Pies
There were hand pies with fresh […]
Bassett’s Allsorts Licorice
If you have an Italian grandmother that’s over 60, chances are very high that she loves these candies. (And Galliano, Pastis, Pernod, Absinthe, Sambuca, Anisette… and probably most things licorice, anise and fennel flavored) Now, we love them, too. That’s mostly due […]
Pompano In Spicy Sauce With Soy
When given the option, always opt for the spicy sauce. That’s our rule of thumb, anyway.

Shao Bing With Beef
Very Generously Stuffed With Thin Slices Of Tender Beef
$6.50 with a drink, this was one very tasty and hearty bargain.
Pan Fried Leek Dumplings
We couldn’t resist a […]
Fresh beans, onions and plump, tender shrimp were all sauced up gorgeously with a complex sambal that keeps you coming back for that next bite. This was shockingly good. And, the serving size was extremely generous.
Paired with […]
Poppy Seed Danish
San Pancho Bakery (Brooklyn, NY)
Surprisingly fresh, soft, fluffy, not too sweet, and jam-packed with poppy seeds, we loved these.
Buford Highway Farmers Market 5600 Buford Highway NE Doraville, GA 30340 770 455 0770
If you eat them immediately, they’re delicately crisp on the outside. The inside is dotted with just enough pastry cream to make them a special treat. After a couple minutes of being bagged up, they get soft and a bit […]
Georgia Olive Farms Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Chef’s Blend)
It’s quite mild, pleasantly smooth, and a tiny touch buttery. If you’re looking for a light, bright, and mildly flavored olive oil, this will fit the bill. It’ll add a light and lovely background note. There will never be […]
Huacatay Salsa (Black Mint Sauce)
Rewarded by lingering, we found two varieties of huacatay salsa.
