Erstwhile Super88 - holy yams!

Hadn't been in the Allston "Coming soon! HK Market" in a while, but stopped in tonight for a few things, and was surprised at just how large the yams section has grown! Japanese (reddish) yams, taro, *enormous* nagaimo, satoimo, and .... ube/purple yams! I think this may be the first time I've seen ube in Boston proper (though maybe it makes an occasional appearance at CMart? I can't remember now) A batch of ube halaya is currently bubbling on the stove :)

(In sadder ube-related news, though, they seem to not be restocking the frozen Ho-Land ube hopia/mooncakes, which are far superior to the refrigerated hopia that they've been carrying... hopefully this is just temporary- I really liked the macapuno/pandan flavor!)
