alicia's market

DSC01538 Realizing I've never been to Alicia's Market, we stopped in to pick up some lunch as well as foods for the week so we wouldn't have to cook.

I chose their 1 choice mini plate with poke (po-kay)...$9.95 and chose their char siu and spicy ahi (yellow fin tuna) poke.

Each plate comes with rice, salad and some kim chee. Their salad is delicious, with lots of "stuff" in it, kinda similar to how my mom makes her potato mac salad.

Would you believe the poke was hotter than the kim chee?! I kid you not.

DSC01539 Mom chose the 1 choice mini plate...$6.95 and chose their char siu ribs.

Their char siu and char siu ribs are delicious, very meaty and flavorful. She liked the salad too because it actually had veggies in it, not like some plate lunch places that serve mac salad with just macaroni and mayo in it.

DSC01540 We also picked up their roast chicken, shoyu style. You can get it as is (whole) or they can chop it up for you.

We asked them to chop it up for us and everything gets chopped, even the drumsticks!

The flavor of this chicken is mild on the shoyu but still very tasty. I think this one cost $9-something?!

DSC01541 And lastly, we picked up some fried ahi (yellow fin tuna) belly...$7-something.

This was good, just enough salt, a very thin outer coating and with a squeeze of that lemon, it was perfect with some rice!

A really tiny store but lots of things to choose from. Parking can be kinda slim during their peak times but we'll be back.

Yum, everything looks and sounds delicious! That's funny that the poke was spicier than the kimchi!
