In my mind, I was almost certain my grandma would recommend some "best kept secret" type place in Chinatown that only super legit Chinese people would know about. So naturally, I would become super cool and legit once I got my hands on one of their woks.
Suddenly, I was starting to get very excited to hear of this secret shop where, surely, no gwai los have been before.
After my mom had spoken to my grandma, I was eager to get the lowdown on the sweet spot:
Mom: I talk to por por about where to buy a good wok.
Me: And? Where did she say to go?
Mom: Por por says Zellers is really good for woks!
For those of you non-Canadian readers, Zellers is a large discount store like Wal-mart.
So now I guess the ancient Chinese secret is out for all to know!
