Momos from the Himalayan Grocery in Woodside
Got a package of frozen beef momos from the Himalayan grocery store around the corner from sripraphai today. They were smaller and looked more like chinese dumplings than the ones i remember from Tibetan places in India. They were good--delicate skin, beefy filling. Not mind-blowing, but good.
What was amazing was the container of hot sauce i got to go with them. They make the stuff there and it's brick red, very hot, and delicious. I'm already thinking of other things to put it on.
They also seem to sell quite a few Tibetan food staples, like ground barley, in big bags.
Also checked out what seems to be a fairly new thai grocery across from sri. They have the usual thai staple goods and then some home-cooked food in packages. the jerky looked good and they had crab-fried rice, which is a family staple when I eat out in bangkok.
What they didn't have, and what I would love to find, is the issan (or lao) style large loose sausage that has both lemongrass and kaffir lime in it and a very distinctly herby taste. I think it's called sai oua. Love that stuff. They have it at chao thai, but would love to be able to buy some plain to take home and eat, like I do in bangkok.
Anyone know where to locate this?
