On our way home from shopping the other day, we stopped by Carrefour, the huge local grocery store. It’s like a super Wal-Mart with all kinds of items for the house, yard, and a full grocery section. I have to say, there is some strange stuff in that store. There were dozens of fruits and veggies I’ve never seen, you can buy live sea creatures for dinner – they have big tanks of fish, turtles, frogs, eels, and more creatures that I couldn’t identify. While we were standing there one of the fish leaped out of the tank and was flopping all over the floor.
They also have HUGE vats of rice, you just get a bag and fill up as much as you need. Next to the rice vats is a whole isle devoted entirely to soy sauce, akin to our salad dressing section.
There’s a prepared food section as well with loads of tasty looking dumplings and rolls, we picked up a few to have for dinner tonight, though we are less than clear on what exactly is inside them.
