So I'm coming back to Lima from NYC after 6 months away, and I need to find some more of my favorite items that i get too used to when I'm in NYC. For now I'll just ask about 1. Basmati Rice, and 2. Sour Cream or Creme Fraiche? I really can't live without Greek yougart either, but for that it's just easier to find plain yougurt and strain it. HA but where to get the plain youguet that isn't the DRINKABLE kind!! My wife can't believe we eat yougurt with a spoon in NYC! hahah I am in SMP so am accesable to everywhere... Metro, Megaplaza, Miraflores.. anywhere reasonable , if you can help! Love you guys! and I can't wait to get back to Lima on Wednesday. I survived the Hurricane! People in Lima think a light drizzle or mist is a rainstorm! BUT in that regard, NYC people won't stop talking about the little tremblor they felt for 10 seconds, last week! "WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE TREMOR HIT!" JAJAJA. OMG we live with that once a week in Peru! See Ya!!
Hey just a quick edit, if anyone hadn't seen.. I am looking now for Chipotle Peppers in adobo. It's a canned Item. Smokey Beautiful Jalapenos, in a rich adobo sauce.. MMM k ricoooo!
OHH Ok... also..
I buy fish and mariscos rarely, but i want to badly. Why?...1. I'm not too sure of the translation of the names of the fish. I only know a few, and tilapia is great for my ceviche., 2. I buy at Metro and Wong, and not on market stalls (NOT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD) 3. I only 1 time went to that huge fish market. That was great but very far and they spot the blue eyed Italian, (thats me) from a mile away!
I see that Calamari is very seasonal here. Every xmas, my family in NYC has loads of calamari and I have gotten so used to being disapointed here during xmas. NO Calamar! I need to but now and freeze it! THANKS!! I NEED CHIPOTLES!!!! ciao!
