Asian Supermarket in or north of Tampa
I live in a small north-central Florida town that doesn't have a whole lot in the way of Asian supermarkets. So, when I'm in a bigger city, I try to take advantage. The ones in Gainesville, the biggest city near to us, don't have these particular items.
We're actually flying back to Tampa today and will stay overnight just to go shopping at an Asian market. I've done a bunch of looking around and found at least 1/2 dozen. Do any of you know if any of those Asian markets has a selection of frozen items?
I will drive north from the airport so places like MD Oriental, Oceanic, and Sanwa bubble to the top of highest-rated and along the way home but I don't know what their frozen section looks like.
We are, in particular, looking for the fake stuff (health-related comments for another thread) such as fake shrimp, chicken, etc. We are not necessarily trying to simulate the meet but we do get some protein and actually enjoy the consistency of some of the products. We throw a few into soups or a stir fry and they do well.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
