The fruit and vegetables section is just simply wonderful for me. Normally Choice Premier, Choice Daily and Ta Kiong have a good variety but Cold Storage had an excellent range of fresh herbs like dills, sage leaves, mints, flat leave parsleys and others which I have never seen in Kuching like pineapple mint, mizuna.
They even come in little pots.
Mushrooms - there were the portobellos, Swiss, Korean ones on top of the usual button mushrooms.The mesclun salads, my my, lola rossa, butterhead lettuce, romaine, rockets etc.
The tomatos ~ red cherries, golden cherries, tomatos on vines.
There were even fresh blackberries and raspberries!
There was also a good section of imported sauces like Burgess, dry pastas and they even have imported flours. I am wondering if I could use it for making pasta because a good substitute for drum flour is a very strong flour. Oh oh they have Pad Thai noodles too. Imagine I had to carry 3 packets back from Phuket.
The arrival of Cold Storage in Kuching has been long overdue. It's a great feeling to wake up to, much like in the morning when the Opposition denied BN the majority in the general elections.
From this day onwards, we would not have any more problems finding olives & capers. Even though the prices are higher especially for items that are not available in the other supermarkets, do go there. But whatever you do, please don't touch touch & poke poke, buy something so that they will continue to stock their shelves.
To 'celebrate' the arrival of Cold Storage in Kuching, we're having Bacon and Nuts Salad tonight with ingredients from Cold Storage.
