This Sunday was the season’s last evening of the Richmond Night Market. Kuan, Silvia and I set out on a long bus ride to southern Richmond and along with thousands of people, we spent a chilly evening strolling down the brightly lit market aisles.

The big winner of the excursion was an amazing Chinese mango roll, which we had to sample three times. Why do we ever find the best dishes in the most faraway places?
