Trip to the Asian Market

In need of a Japanese inspired dessert for tomorrow’s lunch, I decided to scope out the Asian market scene in San Diego.  Upon my Google search, I found 99 Ranch Market which I had heard good things about before. So after work I headed to Clairemont-Mesa, a part of San Diego known for its authentic Asian cuisine. This being my first time in an Asian market, I didn’t know quite what to expect but here is what I discovered:

1. The primary language spoken is Mandarin. Fortunately everyone switched over to English as soon as I walked up to the counter.

2. This particular Asian market extended far beyond a grocery store.  They also had a restaurant, dessert stand, gift shop, and Asian book store.

3. I couldn’t find that they sold any pre-made sushi.  I just found everything to make my own.  That is not going to happen.  I left my sushi making skills back in Argentina.

Although I couldn’t read what half of the products were, I loved walking up and down the aisles looking at the different packaging.  I definitely plan to go back.

Welcome to 99 Ranch Market!
