Each morning Chinatown and I awaken to bright, festive fruits and vegetables being set out. From rambutan to bananas to kohlrabi to dried mushrooms by the pound! I am a well fed Artist-in-Residence here at Ark of the Unicorns!
Peek among the boxes…did you see the kitty behind the durian?
Deep Pink Dragonfruit, not quite ripe persimmons, black or white mysterious (to me) fungi…
Prices here are some of the best in town for fruits and vegets, on this heavily populated island a huge majority of food is imported and crazy expensive. Red Peppers are often $4.99/lb in the grocers, but here in Chinatown they are about $1.79/lb if you don’t mind the misshapen ones.
More than just your servings of fruits and vegetables, Chinatown also has several kitchen and home shops to complete your meals.
Meats available include parrot fish and chicken’s feet:
