We had some time to kill before our flight back to good fried chicken-less Boston, and at first my girlfriend didn't understand why I'd want to spend it wandering the aisles of this ghetto-looking Food World (401 E. Lakewood Avenue, Durham NC 27707 inside Heritage Square Shopping Center).
"You'll see!" said I.
|Pig's Feet! All that for $3.57!|
|Mondongo or Tripe|
|Miscellaneous! $1.60 - what a steal!|
|Cocoyam (Taro) leaves, cooked kittely (closest information I could find online is that you can buy dried kittely on Amazon)|
|Kobo? Oh, Uong, of course. Is this sugarcane? The eReader Kobo makes my research difficult.|
|African Black Soap or Alata Samina|
|Karela (Bitter Melon) Juice and Tastee Cheese|
|Canned Sugar Cane, Jack Fruit and Young Green Jack Fruit|
|Holy bananas! Even at Trader Joe's, where they only started selling coconut oil about two years ago, coconut oil is $5.99 for 16 oz. Here, where they've probably been selling it since forever, it's $5.99 for 25 oz.|
|Imported beers, several of which Whole Foods and wherever don't carry.|
|Dried Bellflower Root, and Dried Red Pepper Leaves (Well-being Food)|
|Where do you buy your Dried Fernbracken?|
|You think edible flowers are some foodie trend from a few years ago? Only for white people. Frozen Loroco Flowers and Frozen Pito Flowers|
|It went on and on. I'll leave you with this. Fried whole fish, jaws agape.|
