Special Shop

If you come from Asia, you might miss your home dishes. I had difficulty to find good ingredients for my asian dishes in supermarket. Until, my friend show me Toko (asian shop). In Toko you can find any kind product from China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and many other country. In The Netherlands, Toko most of the time located in centrum (central city). You can find it by type “toko, -your city name-” in google maps (in example: Toko, Deventer). My favourite Toko is Amazing Oriental, they have many choices.

So, you don’t have to bring all the heavy sauces or other ingredients, I would prefer put my book in my luggage 😉
