After a lot of urging from a friend, I finally went into See Woo at the weekend. Full of great ingredients many of which are explained in English.
Unfortunately, unless you know which brands to buy, it's impossible to tell which taste the best. And in the case of some dried cassava sticks...how to cook them.
Wouldn't it be great if someone ran tours of foreign supermarkets and gave you tips on what to buy and how to cook it.
I need to make friends with experts in Thai and Chinese vegetarian cuisine. In return I can take said friends round Indian supermarkets.
