After dinner, we went next door to Tip Top Mart so she could grab some Indonesian ramen.
Tip Top Mart opened some time last year? I remember noticing when it had replaced the previous business and telling GP since I always tell her when I come across a new Indonesian place. But I didn't really have a reason to stop in until now.
Assortment of Indonesian imported packaged foods.
Nutmeg. Is it the same kind of nutmeg as in the spice? And you can eat it green? I mean like in a more raw state than the spice? I've also tried snakehead before.
I think the main purpose of these small grocery stores is the selection of spice mixes and other pastes so you can make such food at home when you have a craving.
Indonesian shrimp chips.
More mysterious ingredients.
Peanut and durian candy.
On the way out, I noticed a table with boxed Indonesian desserts. Normally there are also rice plates and other ready-made prepared meals, but it was late in the day so all the rice dishes were long gone.
Anyway, this was more of an FYI for my handful of Indonesian readers. In case you wanted more of a selection of packaged goods than what is available at your local store or got hungry and wanted some ready-made food.
