A little asian flare

For those of you who haven't been to a fresh market for your produce, the difference is delectable! A fun date is to visit a local food market and buy fresh goods for your upcoming meal. A unique place to visit is Uwajimaya's located in the International District. A beautiful asian supermarket with a food court with anything from Vietnamese to Malaysian, my mom raves about their orange chicken.

While you are in the area stop by Liem's Aquarium & Bird shop (literally a hole in the wall) to check out the exotic fish, its a little hard to find but the fish are amazing!
511A Maynard Aly S
Seattle, WA 98104-2915
Phone: (206) 624-0537
No, the "Aly" in the address is not supposed to say Ave. You'll find this shop midway down Maynard Alley, one block East of Maynard Avenue. When you hear the crickets, you're almost there.

We love Uwajimayas. We used to drive all the way out to their food court to get Phad Thai and Tom Kah Gai soup to bring home (until we found Thai 65 on the Ave which is yummy and reasonably priced). We like to look at the dishes and buy a new set of pretty chopsticks when we visit. They also have a REALLY excellent mango ice cream in their freezer section. It comes in a tin. OH... and it's also fun to check out their meat department and get grossed out by some of the cuts they sell... like pigs noses. Uck! ;-)
