A whole new world. A dazzling place I never kneeeewww.

I wondered earlier where our closest Ranch 99 was. Usually, if we ever make it to Ranch 99, we’re in Milpitas or Cupertino, and I was sure there was one closer to SF. Hairy looked it up, and the next thing we knew, we were at the Ranch 99 in Daly City. This Ranch 99 is in the middle of an Asian strip mall, filled to the brim with new hole-in-the-wall places to eat at! Like The Porridge King, Teaven (Like heaven, except, with TEA), and SPICY ELEMENTS (now with NEW elements!).

Here are some of the weird things we picked up at Ranch 99.

Thousand year old eggs!!! Take that, Fear Factor! (I like them. I’m Chinese. It happens. You put them in porridge, or squirt soy sauce on them and eat them right out of the shell!)

I grabbed this random can of spicy and sour greens for Hairy. He’ll have to report back on them.

I kinda stuck this in the cart before even caring what it actually contained, simply because I liked the name: HELLO BOSS!!!!!

I do like canned vegetables…canned corn….canned spinach….canned peas. Why not canned snow cabbage? I don’t even know what snow cabbage is.

When we were traveling in Italy, we noticed that Pringles were EVERYWHERE!! SO RANDOM!! I had to buy some more.

Okay, I’m basically the only person I know in real life who LIKES ikura. Everyone thinks they are disgusting.

And finally, the reason we went to Ranch 99 in the first place: my favorite instant milk tea, second best only to the Lipton 3-in-1 we got in Hong Kong.

I am certain that some of these will re-appear again as IEatYuckyStuff.com posts!
