Okay, so a friend told me the Super 88 in Allston already closed, so last time I didn't cycle out to there and cycled to C-Mart instead.
C-Mart is allright, but there are a lot of things they don't have that I look for... like Yimei ice cream, luobogao, the bajillion other refrigerated things Super 88 used to carry, the dizzying variety of noodles. C-Mart just seems too small to carry all the good stuff. They also seem to not carry a whole lot of S.E.asian stuff that I'm used to looking for.
Any tips on where to go for this kind of stuff? On occasion I go to Jin men in Quincy and I can happily find everything I need there, but it is really far for me (cycling there from Cambridge takes about an hour for me, and using the T means waiting for every other red line on a weekend, going to Quincy center, walking 20 minutes or cycling 10, all put together also 1 hour each way).
Any good markets in Boston/Cambridge hiding out there that I don't know about? :-/
