Favorite part of this city is just a few blocks from Soho. I am always skeptical but excted to find products I love in china town. I prefer the japanese market on grand but for the sake of asian ketchup and not so good sponge cake, I go there a lot. I should never eat that much cake but I know I want it. But then there is somethng so bautiful about the lights at night and the fruit stands in an allery next to canal street which is full of loading truck that still looks simple and brings you back to every old city outside NY.

I leave with a Guava juice box and Cheap spongy cake that makes the night so perfect. They are my cheap thrills.
