While waiting for our table at Ngu Binh Restaurant - Westminster, we went a few doors down to check out the tropical fruit at Kim Lien Produce. I've noticed more of these shops that specialize in selling only fruit cropping up in the last year or so.
Jackfruit and a big pile of garlic.
Coc (Vietnamese ambarella). I was tempted to get some, but I prefer my coc fresh and bigger. Hehe. But really, fresh coc is like a tart green mango. So good dipped in chili salt.
That box of rambutans was $10! I didn't end up buying anything, but Tony of SinoSoul bought several oro blanco grapefruit and they were the juiciest, sweetest ever.
Other Vietnamese fruit shops:
Ba Tu Trai Cay Ngon - Westminster (Little Saigon)
Chi Ut Trai Cay - Rosemead
Thai Son Lo Banh Cuon - Westminster (Little Saigon)
