Serious Eats goes shopping for Thai and other Asian ingredients in Jackson Heights with Pok Pok chef and owner Andy Ricker. There’s a great, bookmark-worthy slideshow that could easily serve as a photo I.D. guide to some harder-to-find ingredients. And yes, it does include a photo of Andy Ricker cuddling with a cat, because Andy Ricker may be a great chef, but he is also a noted lover of kittens and cats. [Serious Eats NY]
