I love this Chinese supermarket because of the following delicacies:
Poppoy's pilinuts brittle
Ludy's coco jam
Kanom chun (a layered confection made of coconut, sugar, sweet rice and something green)
Tago saku kawpod (the most lovely compound of sugar, flour, coconut milk, corn, salt, taro and tapioca)
little spherical eggplants
mung bean sprouts
sweet little wrinkled fresh green peppers
shou mian (longlife noodles)
nian gao (sliced sticky rice cakes)
This store is a marvelous gift to San Francisco, especially to those who live a short bike ride from Clement Street and Eighth Avenue. The conjunction of Spices!! and Haig's and New May Wah so close to Green Apple makes this one of the brightest spots in the universe.
