This is a wonderful store with genuinely helpful, knowledgeable owners. In the local newspaper (MP Country Almanac) and online, it's revealed they are in financial trouble. Please support their store if you can and help give them a chance to recover. They also have their wonderful eggs back, btw.

    After reading The Almanac's article, I paid a visit to Nak's on Friday evening. I hadn't been there for a while because it's hard for me to get there during their opening hours (at least, during the week). I had forgotten how nice the owners are. I purchased a bunch of staples (noodles, tofu, fish cakes, etc.) and as always, some stroopwafels which are my husband's favorite. The one surprise for me was they had Pork Lau Lau, which is flown in from Hawaii once a week. It was pricey (over $15 for 3), but worth it not only to get lau lau's but also to support this great local business.

    I hope they'll be able to stay in business!

      Thanks for letting us know. I've alerted my friends in the area. I'm glad we have some advance notice and can try to keep this neighborhood gem going. And I had no idea that it carries Dutch products as well.

      Here are the two articles:

        I always liked this place when I lived nearby. B/c of your post I will go out of my way to shop there in a few weeks when I will be in the area! They deserve support.
