Stockpiling Chinese Goodies from San Gabriel
Let's say you were going to San Gabriel valley and wanted to stock your fridge with Chinese goodies for a few days.
What would you get? Are there any delis out there (like a chinese "whole foods" pre-made deli section) that would do the trick? Or stuff like Sam Woo BBQ pork? Or maybe the "chinese pastrami" from szechuan cold tables?
You mean like Yum Cha Cafe inside of the San Gabriel Superstore? Except that the quality is a bit below Whole Foods.
Hmm, tough call. Some Chinese items are so fresh, they don't transport well. I have a tendency to stock up on groceries (produce, spices, etc.) so I can attempt to cook decent Chinese dishes at home. The other stocking I do is made up from leftovers :-)
...plus, of course, frozen dumplings.
