Located in Chinatown, you'll find†Aji Ichiban, full of confections from Hong Kong. This store is fun and unique, offering everything from snack foods, authentic candies, to dried seafood. Everything is self-serve and priced by weight, so you're able to try lots of things without having to commit to a whole bag. The other great thing is, each bin has a little dish of samples of the food so that you can try before you buy. I got Dried†Spicy Squid (left) and Dried†Sesame Fish (right). You can read the rest of my review with photos here:

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
