Rumor has it that Trish lept out of her PJs into something fashionable (leopard?) and sprinted out the back door .. and I still beat her there by a minute or two (the traffic lights know when I'm coming).
Escapé was out of lychee (although the adjoining grocery had a fresh basket of them), so I opted for a MANGO boba -- "easy on the pearl" -- which was waaay refreshing. Great way to end the week, eh?
I thought seriously about a white bean pastry, but ended up with one of those weird corn pastries instead (fresh corn baked in, on top).
Deep thought: I wonder what my Mifipi relatives would think of this kind of corn bread?This northeast corner of Coit/Park has an interesting mix of Asian food-related stores, interconnected (not obvious from the street): Shabu Shabu restaurant; May Hua grocery; Emma Bakery; Joy Luck BBQ (freshly baked ducks - with heads intact - hanging in the window); a Korean food court; Escapé (a Lollicup boba franchise). And oh yes, a gift shop, which had a few of the new Hidamari No Tami solar-powered people. Too bad I already have one, from Bonane (next to Korea House restaurant on Harry Hines/Royal).
