Silom on the Way Home

Friday, 2/17/06

Silom Supermarket in Thai Town is one of several markets I shop at on a weekly basis. They have great prices on fresh produce, and they stock a good selection of items that are hard to find or expensive at regular supermarkets, such as lemongrass ($0.49 for 4 long stalks), thai basil, kaffir lime leaves, and other Asian produce. I primarily shop there for produce and pantry stock: they have every curry you could possibly imagine, great prices on sauces/oils/stocks, and lots of varieties of rice noodles.

Here’s what I took home this week:

  • 2 bags of roasted peanuts @ $2.09 each (they roast the nuts themselves, so they’re very fresh and tasty)
  • 1 big bag of Vermicelli rice stick noodles @ $1.09
  • 1 tray of peeled garlic @ $1.09 (once you go peeled, you never go back – it makes cooking so easy!)
  • 1 bag of shredded carrot @ $1.09
  • 2 bags of fresh mint leaves @ $0.79 each
  • 1 bunch of green onions @ $0.49
  • 1 tray of jalepeno peppers @ $0.34
  • 1 cucumber @ $0.32
  • a few shallots @ $0.30
  • a few pieces fresh ginger @ $0.26

Grand Total: $10.74

All the remaining ingredients I need to cook some yummy larb this weekend!
