Amazing Oriental Warehouse!

Today my owner was in the mood to cook something foreign and as she decided on an Indonesian dish we paid a visit to the Amazing Oriental Warehouse. It has lots of oriental foods and spices and such and it is the best place in Groningen to go when you need something exotic for your cooking.

It also has a huge amount of canned drinks in all kinds of flavours!

I love these bottles, they're so beautiful!

Some kind of weird fruit.
According to my owner's OH this fruit has a very strong smell so that's probably why they keep it in a fridge.

We ended up buying way more then we actually needed, which always happens when we go there. Here's some of our loot: new bowls, noodles, chopsticks and a strange and very sweet drink called Chubby blueberry

Think that would happen to G. too! She loves all kinds of new things to eat and always wants to try new food. Does your tongue get blue if you drink that??? That would be cool!

Oooo, looks tasty. Chubby is funny! Yes, those are pretty bottles-they're from wayyyy over here. Arizona (Tea) has put out some nice ones over the years.

Oh gosh, how exciting!! Andrea says that she has a recipe for my Favourite Food, Tabouleh, and she's going to try and make it for me!!! I'll remember to take photies when she tries it!

@Hammie: no blue tongue sadly enough, just very very sweet...

@Beanie: Never had Tabouleh, will ask my owner to make it sometime, if she can find a recipe.

Hey Sullivan - that weird prickly fruit is called durian and it is very strong smelling...if you cut it open there are lots of "fruits" inside in their own cavities and they each have their own pit as well. I personally don't like it because it is a very strong flavor and is very slimey.

We have an oriental store here too but I haven't gone yet...perhaps tomorrow I will!!
