    I lived in Singapore for four years and recently moved back to CLE after 20 years. This was a killer tour. Andy made us feel totally at home and the Asian memories came flooding back. This is a must do for CLE’rs that want to learn about Asian culture and “a to die for” for Asian foodies. Do yourself a favor!

    I highly recommend Ice or Rice’s Asian grocery tour. We had a blast really getting to know the market and all of its products, enjoyed lots of tasty tempura, snacks and fruits, and learned a ton. Thanks for the great hospitality, Andy and Jessie!

    I could not be more pleased with our experience. I attended with my adult daughter and we had a great time. Andy and Jessie are very gracious hosts, patient listeners and talented chefs.
    The education on soy sauce alone was worth the price of admission! Highly recommended!

    Do this tour it’s so fun and really informative. If you’ve ever been to one of Cleveland’s Asian markets, I’m sure you were faced with the rows of soy sauces, or chili pastes, or produce (all marked “vegetable”) and wondered where to start. Well, where to start is Ice-or-Rice’s “Asian Grocery Tour and Tasting”. Andy Ng shows you the possibilities, explains the differences between the condiments, suggests where to use certain ingredients, and recommends the best brands while wandering the aisles of the Market. After the tour we walked across the street to Andy’s yard where under a canopy we had a wonderful tasting of various condiments, lesser known fruits and fantastic tempura prepared by his wife. And yes, Durian was on the menu. With this knowledge, our next trip to the market will be seriously fun. Do this tour!

    I had so much fun and learned an amazing amount about Asian produce, spices, meats, and condiments. I have, apparently, never tasted good soy sauce nor did I know that different varieties of soy sauce existed. It was such an education led by someone who is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and concise in answering questions!

    This was a wonderful tour and tasting. My husband and I have been to this grocery store many times, but with guide & host Andy, we learned so much. After the tour, Andy and his wife Jessie hosted us in their back yard for a food sampling. We tasted several types of vegetable tempura (lotus root, anyone?), many Asian sauces, different types of hot tea, and best of all, exotic fruits. I can now check “try durian” off my bucket list! This is a must-do tour for any foodie or anyone interested in Asian food and culture.

    It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon with my adult son. The hosts were fantastic and the tour was very informative. Such a great adventure. So many things I want to try! Thanks for your hospitality Jessie and Andy!
