On visits to Fresno, I've always made a point to seek out Hmong food. This past October, I checked out this small market. A variety of Southeast Asian snacks and prepared foods are packed up, ready for convenient grab and go, such as banh mi, rice ball salad, grilled chicken, desserts and more. It sells boba drinks too. I bought Hmong eggrolls, freshly fried shrimp chips and Mexican duros as snacks to enjoy with the exotic Raft Wines "Jonquille" Viognier I'd brought for my Fresno hostess.

But it's the hot kitchen here that deserves a special mention. I ordered the Kao Poob (aka khao poon), $5.50. It was packed carefully with the thin rice noodles kept separate from the hot soup and other ingredients. Two mornings later, I reheated this to share with my hosts in Southern California and we were all impressed. Very fragrant and complex, packed with lime leaves, chicken, ground pork, cabbage, and aromatic herbs in a mild yellow coconut curry base, this was a delectable breakfast.

Too bad Fresno is so far from my usual haunts.
