I just can't get over how cheap food is at Asian Midway Foods on Park Street. Sunday must be the day to go because there were tons of customers and several workers bustling out fresh produce. [TIP!]
Now... I've read Yelp. I get it. Some of you don't like AMF, but my sister is the boss...OK? She is an F-O-B in a kick arse way. Urban dictionary it.
Anyway, she likes AMF best because the prices are so similar to China. She loves getting the produce, Japanese tofu and dumplings there. Since she's vegan, she buys a handful of things over and over again... so is it for everyone? Mehbe. Mehbe not. But, we like it.
Check out these olives! The store has a small Middle Eastern section, and these black olives are actually more similar to kalamata olives. Oh, and I got nearly 300 in this package for about $2.70.
And the rest? It's obvious. Some big faves this purchase: lychee, hummus and olives. Not pictured are about 10 baby bok choy heads that I got for about $2.50. No offense, but I got about 6 wilted ones at Hyvee for about $8. Still bitter about it, though I love Hyvee for most things.
I got a whole cart of food for about $55. I was practically skipping out of the parking lot. Oh yeah, and I bought my favorite spicy bean oil.
