Today my friend Kip & I headed to Ikea, I needed to buy some shelf inserts (fun!) & Kip wanted to test out some mattresses so off we went. Of course we had to find a way to make it all about the food & we detoured to Wing Yip, a huge Chinese superstore in Croydon.
They had so much awesome vegan food! Sadly most of it was frozen & I'm not one to go re-freezing things once they've defrosted so I only picked up a couple of things, the vegetable spring rolls which I'm about to devour & the Vegetarian Style Chicken Pieces which are in the fridge & can be cooked just fine from chilled rather than frozen. I really wanted a huge bag of gyoza dumplings which were £1.49 but sadly it wasn't to be - this time. I am definitely taking Nick, our car & a cool box there soon!
Also pictured are plum sauce which I know is delicious, noodles which surely will be delicious & Hawthorn sweets which are not very delicious. We bought these because the packaging was cute & because a bit of googling told us that hawthorn is a fruit that grows on bushes rather than some kind of pork! If anyone's a fan of Hawthorn sweets leave me a comment & I'll send ya some!
After spending aaaages wandering around this huge superstore we headed to Ikea only to find more awesome vegan food!
I was looking for the delicious Singoalla biscuits...
...but sadly they were nowhere to be seen. If you stumble across these buy them, I promise you wont be disappointed! It was all okay though because thanks to vegan blogger Phoenix Dreaming I knew to look out for these chocolate, coconut balls of awesomeness, Delicatoboll. These are melt in your mouth amazing & I'm so glad I bought two boxes!
Whilst nosing around the food area I also found organic elk shaped pasta - I don't think I need to explain why that's cool & if I do I don't think you should be reading my blog - and a build your own gingerbread house. Thankfully the house doesn't come with any of the icing or smartie style decals you see on the box so it's totally vegan! I can't wait to build this - I had big plans to make one of my own this year but I know deep down that I don't have the patience to craft a house of of gingerbread, sticking this one together might be enough of a challenge!
I'll be back with more MoFoing fun tomorrow, see you then!
