Oranges and Canned Fish from Germany, Israel, and Spain
If that sounds like a random combination above, that's because it is. I just happened to find a few interesting things at stores around town recently, like that canned trout from Germany above. It was a lot better than I thought it would be; obviously it wasn't as rich as tuna, but it was delightfully smoky, and reasonably priced at only S$8 (US$6) from Huber's Butchery.
Cold Storage has also been selling a lot of different kinds of oranges. Sure, they had some American mandarins from Sunkist, as well as some Spanish tangerines, both of which were fine. But my favorite were these little Israeli ones in a red mesh bag, as they were consistently tangy and seedless. They were also better than a box of larger Orri mandarins that Cold Storage was selling, which incidentally were also from Israel.
Finally were these cans of yellow fin and north tuna belly from Spain (believe or not, I found them at Mustafa, of all places). They were both sliced thinly, but the north tuna was better than the yellow fin, the latter of which was surprisingly lean. I'll happily go back to buy more of the latter, especially since they were priced at only S$6.90 (US$5.10). I think I finally found my low-cost alternative to Don Bocarte.
