What makes the staff of BDJ Labs almost as happy as eating bacon? Why, eating Asian snacks, of course! Just two blocks away from our headquarters is Broadway Market, a grocery store that carries all sorts of treats from China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Korea. The variety of items they sell is stunning--about a zillion types of tofu (including the far superior yellow-skinned variety you find in Asian takeout food but not in most grocery chains), exotic fresh seafoods, and more noodles than you could shake a stick at.** In addition to all the goodies we buy for Asian recipes, we also stock our baskets full of Asian snacks--each bite is an adventure, whether it be shrimp crackers (kinda like Cheetos, only with fishy flavor instead of cheddar), Pocky (chocolate-covered sticks of deliciousness), or any number of frozen goodies. Since our cupboards are already full of these goodies, we decided we might as well bacon-wrap some of the things we have on hand, in addition to a few new things. Squid nuggets, for example, which we're afraid of, so we're working our way up to them.
Anyway, we're very excited--stay tuned, kids.
