Fresh longan in Santa Rosa
Picked up some fresh longan from China this weekend at Asia Mart on Guerneville Road. They're about $2.50 per pound, sweet, juicy, and good quality. We still had a little RRV Gewurz on the table after dinner and my friends were amazed at how closely the flavors mirrored each other.

The message boards have a new feature called "Places". If you click on the Asia Mart link in my post above or the same thing listed under "Places Mentioned" in the upper right hand side, it will take you to the Places page for Asia Mart with a google map and other information about the place. It's on the corner of Fulton Road. A little hard to access, as you can't make a left turn into the store's parking lot if you're approaching from Fulton. Easiest way to get there is to take 101 north, exit at Steele Lane, head west and it becomes Guerneville Road. The store will be on the right hand side just before intersection with Fulton. Hope they still have some.
If you continue heading west on Guerneville Road, you'll fine Wine Country Honey and after that, Willowside Meats.

Check out Quezada too, as it stocks some non-Mexican Latin American products to differentiate itself. Both Lola's and Quezada, plus the newcomer Rancho Mendoza are better than most of the mercados in SF's Mission.
