A Trip to Lee Lee's Market

A few weeks ago, I learned how to make Vietnamese Spring Rolls. In order to buy the supplies, I took a trip to Lee Lee's Market. It is always an experience. They have all kinds of stuff you just don't see in regular markets like Jack Fruit. If you read my blog, you will know one of my favorite meals is green papaya salad and spring rolls. You can't get green papaya just anywhere but always at Lee Lee's.

We also saw live crayfish.....

Live blue crabs.....

I bought all the makings for spring rolls & green papaya salad including rice noodles, green beans,

and shredded green papaya. Yes, I was being lazy!

daikon radish and carrot salad. I bought this ready made. I LOVE it.
Here are all the parts for the spring roll. Cilantro, mint, shrimp, rice noodles, pork and lettuce.

You only have to wet the rice paper a little bit. Then add all the components.

In the end, you get some amazing spring rolls and a great green papaya salad. I could live on this meal!

Happy cooking every day!
