Just wanted to give a shout out and a public thank you to SE member Saucy Johnny. SJ was in my town today and took this newbie to her first ethnic grocery market. He was kind enough to wait for me (to get off work), brought me some nice homemade things and walked around the market showing me some of the interesting things they had there. I'd driven by this place a 100 times and never thought to go in.
He is a great asset to Serious Eats and overall, a very kind gentleman.
Thanks again SJ! =) =) =)
