Decided to explore a little more today, and walked down a different spoke from the Place d'Italie. Saw Tang Frères 2, an oriental grocery store, and ventured in, hoping to find some curry paste.

Wowee! As big and with a very similar selection as our beloved Yu Wah in Madison, but with a superb produce dept., a butcher, and prices that were absolutely amazing. Found a curry paste and all the fixings for Dr. B's famous mélange of various cultures curry tonight, plus pretty much everything else on my list.

And it cost much, much less than I expected. I doubt I could have found half of that at our local supermarket for that price.

Yay! Curry tonight!!! And I'll be returning to patronize the Tang Brothers, regularly and often. I can't wait to take Dr. B. there. He's going to go crazy.

Uh-oh. That means he'll start buying weird stuff again, like he did in Madison.

What do you do with dried shrimp, anyway?

Hmmm, anything you want to I suppose.... you just have to rehydrate them. Wierd I know... and they look kinda funny,no?
Make soup? Make stir fry?

Dried Shrimp are great in Thai soup!

We make a regular trip to Tang Freres - at least once every two months or so - just to stock up on the necessities like rice and soy sauce. The prices are so cheap :)
