Why I am lucky to know the joys of Tan-A

My sickness lingers still. This causes my brain to be ill equipped to cook anything interesting, much less write anything interesting about things I’ve cooked. I’ve been enjoying a delightful diet of bananas, canned soups, and mangy leftover as of late. Oh, and Ludens cough drops. That’s the best perk of being sick, in fact. Illness is the best excuse ever to suck those babies down like air.

In any case, I love Tan-A. As I have mentioned before, Tan-A is the biggest of the local Asian grocery stores in Richmond. They have, among other things, some very tasty fresh food made daily, perfect for lazy lunches and desserts. For about $2.50 plus tax, I can pick myself up a 3-pack of these babies:

Garden rolls

I love garden rolls so bad. These come with some really good peanut sauce, and are much better rolled then the ones I try making. I highly recommend getting a pack and enjoying their lusciousness!

    Yes! Tan-A is wondrous. It’s located at the corner of Broad St. and Horsepen. I especially love their entire aisle dedicated to nothing but junk food.

    These rolls are really delicious as I also have cooked these rolls on my weekend holiday at home. Everybody at my home loved the taste of these rolls and it was really nice to get the idea of it.
