Lunch from Palama Market - 8/28/2008

It was my half day at work today. I originally had planned on going to Foster Garden to get some macro shots of flowers, but I got hungry and decided to get some macro shots of food instead. I went to Palama Market and got this Korean sushi ($3.50), always a good thing.
and this Pork Belly with Mochi ($4.99). I don't really care for the pork belly. It's really fatty, but I think that's what makes the sauce so ono. I usually kinda just nibble on a small bit of the meat and mostly eat the mochi. Luckily my son doesn't care for the mochi but loves the pork belly. The flavor is out of this world.
I also got this Seafood Pancake ($5.00). Best described in The Tasty Island food blog,"It’s a medley of seafood items such as imitation crab, fish and shrimp with large stocks of green onion, carried in a slightly flavored flour and egg 'pancake' batter." The best thing to me about this dish is the sauce. I made the mistake once of grabbing one that was missing the sauce and it just wasn't the same without it.
And then, of course, I had to grab a few ice cream bars to try out. This one has two chestnuts on the wrapper,
so I guess the stuff in the middle is supposed to be chestnuts, but it didn't taste like it. It was okay.
This one is called "Wild Body", maybe 'cause it looks wild.
It's coffee flavored with bits of crispy chocolate. This too was okay.
This was the best of the three.
It was really good . . . a very smooth and creamy strawberry flavored yogurt bar, but still not nearly as good as the Korean Ice Cream Wafer I wrote about previously.
So much for the ice cream taste test, but now I gotta explain to my husband why I got all these ice cream bars in the freezer with one bite taken out of 'um. Maybe he won't notice.
