Cora Fred Sari-Sari Store in Paris, France

Our last day in Paris was all planned out, with only one objective in mind: drop by a Filipino store. Some may not understand how strongly I feel, but trust me going home without buying some Filipino groceries was just impossible. If ever I had to make a list of living in Paris vs. where I'm currently living, the Filipino stores would definitely be high in my Pro-Paris list. Anyways, I knew where I needed to be that morning and after a quick Metro ride, I was happily going through the stocks of Pinoy products in the Cora Fred Sari-Sari Store.

We were here to stock up and I think the nice people at the Sari-Sari store clearly saw that. For almost 100 Euros, I was able to pick out a lot of my favorites. I only hope it will last for more than a month ( ... but I know it won't).

So here are some of the things we bought:

Ready-to-cook Puto mix, Del Monte Tomato Sauce, Corned Beef, Guisado Bagoong, Salted Black Beans, Mama Sita's Menudo / Afritada, Pancit Canton Chili-Mansi and Homemade Chicharon (we've missed this!!!)

I had visions of Puto Cheese, Filipino-Style Spaghetti, Menudo, Afritada, Kare-Kare, Spareribs with Tausi, and Ginisang Corned Beef floating in my head.

To make those delicious dishes, I also made sure to stock up on sauces and seasonings.
Banana Sauce (a must with Fried Chicken!!!), Sweet Chili Sauce, Pinoy Kurat Spiced Coconut Vinegar, Datu Puti Vinegar, and Soy sauce.

And finally, we indulged on some of our favorite childhood snacks or chichiria. These did not even last a week! LOL

Neither did the homemade Lumpiang Gulay, made of carrots, beans, and togue. We bought several for "lunch on the train". Instead, these were "late breakfast in the streets of Paris".
