After years of having my husband or my parents pick something up for me because they were going to be in the neighborhood, I made my first trip to the 17th Street Market last night. It’s off my beaten path in an industrial area, but what a treat! This international (predominately Asian) market includes a fish monger and enough interesting goodies to keep me wandering the aisles for more than an hour. How unusual to find frozen banana leaves and Dutch hagelslag in Tucson! I found enough to fill my little shopping basket, but the reason for my trip was Forbidden Rice – which I’m eager to try after several friends have talked about having it in some of the nicer restaurants in town.
