One of the best things that happened to Vancouver is the presence of several T&T Supermarkets that make food shopping such a delight.
Food shopping at T&T Supermarket is almost like travelling to a foreign market. There is always something new. This time, it is the Taiwan mangoes that caught my attention. They are so huge they almost looked like Papaya. I could not resist taking a photo of a Taiwan mango beside a Philippine mango. I have seen big Thailand mangoes which are big, but this time T&T is selling Taiwan mangoes and they are bigger than any Thailand mangoes I’ve seen. Taiwan mangoes sell for almost $10.00 each while Thailand mangoes are about half the price.
Whether Taiwan mangoes actually taste better than Philippine mango or not, I am not willing to pay the $10 to find out.
Anyone out there who has tasted Taiwan mango or Thailand mango and who can give an opinion. I have tried Philippine and Mexican mango, and I find the Mexican mango too stringy.
Anyway, with the abundance of the different mangoes at T&T, I will be trying out more mango recipes, in salads, main course or dessert.
