The Quest for Asian Veggies

Saturday, May 9, 2020

When the stay at home order started, we were already pretty well stocked and we only needed fresh fruits and veggies so we just ordered on Fresh Direct.I really didn’t want to go to stores and more importantly, I did not want my parents to.Their age puts them at high risk.Eventually, we all started missing Asian produce and I was running out of sauces and dry goods.Fresh Direct occasionally has napa cabbage, shanghai bok choy, and daikon radish but not regularly.A couple of my friends were still hitting Asian supermarkets but eventually, a lot of them started closing.(I hear some of them will start re-opening.) Regardless, there seems to be a demand so I put together a list of on-line sites where you can order Asian goodies from.These sites only deliver to the NYC area (some only certain boroughs, some a little further).I’ve been mostly upstate so keep in mind that these are anecdotal notes from friends and family.Try them at your own risk.

If you know of another one to add to the list, let me know!

亚洲-Veggies.com

亚洲 Veggies is still in soft opening mode, trying to get more pictures onto their website.They have decent quality and a good selection of veggies, some fruits, and some dry goods.They are a little pricey and quantities might be large, especially for fruit, i.e.64 fuji apples in a box.There’s an $8 delivery fee.Orders place by 6pm are delivered next day (no Sundays)

DineMarket.com

Dine Market is a site that let’s you shop from three different suppliers.To make it less confusing, my SIL advises filtering for one supplier when you shop.She uses Valley View which has a $50 minimum.Prices are reasonable considering item quantities and free delivery.They are reliable and it’s easy to get delivery.

FreshGoGo.com

Fresh Go GO is kind of like Fresh Direct for Asian stuff but the website is not as good.他们确实存在大流行之前,所以它更of a website than most of the other ones.There’s a pretty large selection of fruits, vegetables, dry goods, prepared foods, and even masks and sake sets.The prices are reasonable and mostly good quality.No delivery fee but it’s very hard to get a time slot so my brother went to a pick-up point in Jersey City.Even so, this is my extended family’s favorite option because of the wide selection.

Konveny.com

I don’t know anyone who has tried this site yet but they’re centered around Japanese products.Free delivery for orders over $75

SAFG.us

SouthEast Asia Food Group is a wholesaler that is making home deliveries.You have to message them for a price sheet.There’s no pictured shopping site so it’s a bit hard to order.I know one person who made a home order and she did misunderstand some of what she ordered.However, the plus is that you can easily get a next day delivery slot.Some quantities are small and some are large and prices are good.The delivery fee and minimum seems so have changed so I don’t want to post the wrong info.Email them to ask.

We lost this amazing man today.He was a second father to Lon and he didn’t die of COVID but because of the current situation, we didn’t get to say goodbye.We won’t get to attend the funeral.We won’t get to hug and console his family in person.My heart breaks for Lon, Henry’s family, and the countless other people who are probably going through the same thing.#RIP #thefamilyyouchoose

Continuing on the theme of sharing my favorite recipes while we ride out the pandemic…I’ve tried several #japchae recipes over the years and my family favors @maangchi ‘s recipe.There is quite a bit of prepping and slicing but maybe improving knife skills could be goal right now.Everyone is different but keeping busy is keeping me sane and distracted from dwelling on the situation.Be well everyone!。。。。。。# japchaenoodles # homecooking # # eathealthy自制 #eattheworld #eattherainbow #stayhome #recipes #beef #egg #bellpeppers #carrots #spinach #noodles #sweetpotatonoodles

I no longer order octopus at restaurants because a dish usually consists of two tenticles which is not even close to enough for our family.At somewhere between $16 and $24 for the dish, it’s just not economical for me to order two or three plates of it.At home, I usually make whole octopus, around 4 pounds, and we sometimes finish it.~Octopus salad with roasted eggplant, olives, and tomatoes .。。。。。。。#homecooking #homemade #seafood #octopus #Eggplant #Tomato #olives #instayum #instafood #mediterraneanfood

I’ve mentioned this trend in upscale Korean before ….and I’m totally buying!Kochi does a great job with their 9 course skewer-centric tasting menu ($75 but there are supplements you can add) where the food feels beautiful and fancy, artfully served, with knowledgeable and well trained staff.YET, the space is small and kinda cramped in that typical NYC way so it doesn’t feel stuffy and formal.It’s also currently still BYOB (no corkage fees).My two favorites (but really enjoyed everything) were the first and third dishes.Upper left corner, Pine nuts and potato milk soup, corn fritter.Upper right corner, Seared shrimp, sunchoke soubise, mugwort glaze (doesn’t say on menu but I think there’s shrimp paste on top of the shrimp which is divine).Also, the second dish of raw yellowtail should get an honorable mention for being so beautiful!。。。。。#nyceats #koreanfood #skewers #yellowtail #shrimp #fish #branzino #chicken #hangersteak #rice #bibimbap #pork #icecream #icepop #tastingmenu #midtownwest

So I can’t NOT compare this place to the other #Taiwanese place around the corner.All you really need to know is that this one is a sad step down and you should just stick with Taiwanese Gourmet.For details, read on: An overarching theme here is that they have poor knife skills.So much is cut too large and inconsistently.For example, some of the pieces of pig intestines were large and chewy while others were tiny, in random shapes.(I don’t remember ever complaining about this of any restaurant.It’s not super top of mind until it’s a glaring problem that effects taste and texture.) The #ricecakes were gummy while the pork was again inconsistently sized.The salt and pepper #calamari was too chewy.The #beef #noodle #soup , #porkchop #rice , and #oysterpancake were just mediocre in flavor.The best dish was just plain sauteed water convolous.I had high hopes, mainly because there’s a big bowl of swan tsai (pickled mustard greens) on every table.利结束……。。。。。。# chinesefood #助教iwanesefood #cheapeats #elmhurst #nyceats
