Good Stuff in Your Kitchen

We were just walking around Kau Yuk Road after lunch and bumped into this gem of a store called Good Stuff in Your Kitchen.  What really caught our eyes were the walls and rows of beer.  They looked imported, which is always a nice thing!

The shop was a hodgepodge of a lot of things besides beer.  There were desserts in the front display with little macrons, lemon tarts, pear pies, muffins, and the like.  There were also muscat grapes at the bottom.

The outside of the shop was really beautifully laid out.  There were little shelves on both sides of the entrance that showed the stock of beer and teas that were inside.

The shop was quite small, but that's what you get with specialty stores.  This was actually the first time that I'd noticed this shop, so it must be a recent addition to Kau Yuk Road.

The beer selection reminded me of something out of World Market.  There were uniquely named beers, selections of fruit juices, milk, cheese and even salami all in one refrigerator.

At the entrance also, there were some pretty lovely looking Japanese melons that were going for a couple hundred dollars.

They also carried a selection of Tea Pigs tea bags, for anyone who is into this brand.

On the top shelves, there were also bits of pasta, sauces, pickles, and jams.

For being quite a small shop, I thought they had a really good selection of the most randomest of things.  I guess, they really did want to put as many Good Things for the Kitchen into this space.

In the end, we just picked up a lemon tart and a few macrons.  We had them for afternoon tea and it was pleasantly satisfying.  I'm not sure if I'll ever go back to this store with a driven purpose, but if I see it again, I might take another poke around and see what they have in stock.

But, what a pleasant surprise to find a shop like this in Yuen Long!
