[VIETNAMESE] This market across the street from Northeast Sandy Boulevard’s Safeway sells cock for 98 cents a can. That’s right—the shelf label for the canned young green jackfruit reads “cock.” Seems pretty dang cheap to me. In Nam Phuong’s small produce section you’ll find a decent array of the usual East Asian market suspects including lots of fresh herbs. The meat counter is mostly pork and beef, there’s a good selection of frozen seafood and the aisles are crowded with everything from home kitchen supplies to canned young tamarind leaf, dried mushrooms, sacks of dried noodles and chile sauces.
Grocery list: Fresh shredded green papaya, quail eggs, bag of pickled mustard greens.
