They had milk, but of course I didn't buy any because I don't drink milk. Nonetheless, my time walking past the milk aisle made me miss Mr. Wonderful so I thought I would post a shopping report.   I

Everytime I've been there about 90% of the shoppers are Pinoy. They have a whole section of australian meats.

They make their own roast beef - when it's on sale $5 a lb = 11 USD a kilo with free quart of Au Jus quart  with every pound for making Italian beef sandwiches.

 

Took 18 kilos with me to S. Carolina because they can'y get good deli on Hilton Head Island. cost  only $175  - 7,000 P.

 

Got a 3 foot Italian sandwich there today - $10.50

I roasted my uber expensive turkey breast. It came out quite nice. Will be good for sandwiches for a week for myself. I should not have salted it prior to roasting however as it turned out a bit salty for my taste.

My casual observation is they are a bit high on those things. I bought a 60" LED, china brand I never heard of about 8 months ago and its still going strong. It was quite a bit cheaper than name brand. Don't ask me how much I paid because I can't remember.

I'm not sure about meat, but Rustan's at Ayala Mall seems to have a pretty good selection of imported French culinary items. I guess the Metro grocery has a few, too.

 

SM grocery used to have a good selection of imported French items, as well..... now, it is impossible to find ANYTHING in there. They have literally flipped the whole layout of their store! I can't find anything there! To heck with 'em... they don't even sell Litro Red Horses there!
