The selection consisted primarily of knits in solid colors. The staff was very friendly and the fabric bolts were neatly arranged by color. They also had remnant bins of different types of prints / leathers / buttons / etc.

I purchased some cream sateen, striped / cobalt / magenta jersey, and a ruffled knit fabric to dress up little E.
I wanted to further explore the neighboring stores, but many close around 5:30 PM and it was starting to get a little dark. Till next time!
On to the food! SinBala is one of our favorite places to get Taiwan style milk tea, but we had never tried their food.
Sausage w/ Rice Plate
I've had Chinese sausage (lap cheong) before, but this was different and very tasty. The skin seemed thinner, the filling lighter, and the general taste reminded me of Chinese roasted pork (cha siew). I actually prefer this to cha siew because I get the same wallop of flavor without dealing with the inevitable chunks of fat / tendon / etc. We wound up buying a package of their sausage to take home with us and will be buying more on our next trip.
Taiwan Style Milk Tea
There is an incredible depth of tea flavor in Taiwan style milk tea that gives it a hint of an almost coffee taste. I don't know what it is or what kind of tea they use, but every time I have it, I recognize it instantly. Can anyone shed some light on this or am I crazy?
Granted, popcorn chicken is hardly an adventurous choice, but this was highly recommended on Yelp and I wanted to see what it was all about. I have to say that this was done very well and seemed like it was freshly prepared rather than frozen. A very thin layer of batter coated the chicken (maybe just dredged in seasoned flour?) to give it the perfect crisp.
Have a great week!
