Perfumed Rice

Jays' Asian Foods 1

Yesterday's planned shoot did not take place due to a variety of the usual factors, ranging from flat light to baby's nap times. Maybe another try today.

So Carolyn, Emily, Madeleine and I decided to go out to dinner at a new-ish Moroccan restaurant we've been wanting to try, Baida. (Capsule review: people - very nice. Decor - okay but rather spare. Food - eh. Go back - not soon.) It's on the strip of South Grand Boulevard lined with international eateries, leaning toward East Asian, Middle Eastern and North African, with a favorite old Italian place thrown in.

A fixture of the street is Jay International Foods, shown here with some shots through the front window. May your rice emit sweeter perfume than the Grand Boulevard bus.

I would not ordinarily think of St. Louis as being a place for a lot of exotic ethnic foods, other than German and Italian, but I guess times have changed since I lived there in the 1960's.

I like the review -- right to the point!

I'll sample any type of brown rice. Perfumed? Well, that's another story.

Perfumed rice is a new one to me.
