Sorry, readers, I’m weeks behind with cupcake reports. I have a big list of things to write about, but for today: If you’d been wondering where in Auckland to buy vegetarian versions of your favourite obscure animal byproducts, one place to look is Lim Chhour supermarket on K Road. There are shelves and a freezer section full of vegetarian jerky, vegetarian gizzard, vegetarian smoked liver, and all manner of substitutes for random animal parts.
Things I have actually bought at Lim Chhour recently include:
- frozen edamame! You just empty the bag into boiling water, and five minutes later you have a big bowl of steamed salted soybeans.
- fresh Otago cherries
- rice milk
- instant noodles with kimchee soup
- dried strawberries
