Glad you enjoyed the stuff from Canada! They do love their ketchup chips there!

I was at Marukai Living recently and saw some palm sugar disks in the "Hawaiian" section. The disks looked a darker brown than the ones pictured in your post though. I


cool swag! I agree that the prettier the meal the more appetizing it is :)


I got the pandan flavoring from that manufacturer, and it smells accurate. I can't say I'm dying to try the durian though. I love durian; to me it smells creamy like vanilla, but I know others find it absolutely disgusting. I'd rather not find out that it's their version of stinky durian that's been bottled.


Wang Ma Zi - I'll have to remember that brand.


Hi Kirk, those set of Wang Ma Zi looks pretty legit! I've been thinking of getting a cleaver for a while and was narrowing down to one from Dexter. A light and medium should do for my use. But anyway I enjoyed my bag of goodies from CC too.


is that the lemongrass chicken in the noodle photo? yum. looks like duck and I was thinking maybe you'd finally found hawaii quality roast duck in sd? (im still searching for that!)


Hi CC - Thanks so much for the goodies, that was so thoughtful of you. You know, I've always bought palm sugar that was a lot darker too....but these were very light. Tasted ok though.

Hi Kat - I tend to think so as well.

LOL KT! You've got a good point.....

Hi Ed - Wang Ma Zi is supposed to be one of the best least in Northern China everyone knows the brand.

Hi Dennis - The cleavers are great...especially when razor sharp.

Hi Stacy - Yes, that's lemongrass chicken. I've been disappointed in the roast duck 'round these parts. You can try Lien Hoa in Westminster....that duck was good. Thanks for commenting.....

The pandan flavor is divine! I was going to make coconut pandan sticky rice for you guys on our cancelled BBQ.


Hi TFD - Well we'll have to reschedule!


Hi Kirk! Thanks for the tip on the smaller sized palm sugar. I'll have to pick some up when I go through my current batch.


Hi Carol - I hadn't bought palm sugar in so long, I don't remember seeing these before.
