Top Fresh Asian Market

Spending time in Berlin with my friend Morgan reignited my interest in learning more about Chinese cooking.

To the point where, sitting in Morgan’s living room, I ordered a copy of Every Grain of Rice from Amazon; it was waiting for me when I arrived home to Canada.

Step number one, working my way through the book’s introduction, is to stock up our pantry; I was greatly aided in that effort by the opening of a new Asian grocery store a few blocks from our house.

Top Fresh Asian Market is on Grafton Street across from Holland College. It’s very well stocked, and I was able to find everything on my list, from Chinkiang brown rice vinegar to fermented tofu. They’re open most days from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

I suspect I’ll be a regular customer.

Hey, Peter, this reminds me of our recent conversation. Instead of a grocery store downtown maybe it is being created as more of a European experience, one shop at a time.

Agreed. That’s a much preferable situation, and more sustainable.
