It was Chinese New Year on Monday 23rd January. We cook a lot of Chinese and Asian style food, so I often head to Chinatown to buy groceries. The official Chinatown is in Fortitude Valley in the city, but I go to Sunnybank on Brisbane's southside where there is a large Chinese shopping centre.
Sunnybank is great. You will find Chinese butchers, a large Chinese supermarket and seafood. It's so interesting and diferrent. The kids love it.
This is the sign in the butcher. I ordered half a peeking duck which was $14, so maybe it was the fourth item on the list?
Did you know there was more than one type of dried shrimp?
and how's this for a selction of mushrooms?
It's always fun to go out to Sunnybank and try new things.
