Thought I’d share a few of the more unusual items I found on my trip to Hawaii Supermarket in San Gabriel yesterday. Well, they’re unusual if, like me, you grew up in a household where turkey meatloaf was considered exotic. This place makes 99 Ranch Market look like the rookie spot. Some pictures after the jump.
-There’s been some chowhound speculation, and I’m happy to confirm that YES, they have frozen armadillo (pictured above).
-It was hard not to try and save a few of the live turtles (hard shell and soft shell) wrestling around in a big bin.
-Ditto the live toads.
-What I won’t be taking home: Edible beef and pork blood, frozen beef and lamb testes, pork brains.
