Florida Sourced Filipino Food at Kabayan Oriental Mart

Kabayan Oriental Market is selling Atsara made with Florida sourced green papaya. It is so delicious you might have trouble putting it down.

The freshness of the papaya means it has more vitamins than bottled versions sold in the store according to Gemma Thedford, the owner. "We now have the equipment to process the green papayas," said Gemma, adding, "The pickle goes very well with our barbecued dishes."

I had to agree on the last point. I bought a BBQ pork combo that came with four skewers of juicy BBQ pork, four crispy, lady-finger sized egg rolls, a cup of white rice, and a large portion of Pancit (rice noodles, sauce, and vegetables).

The crunchy sweet & sour, spicy & salty papaya pickle really complimented the smoky, garlic flavor of the pork.

The shop is located in the plaza at the corner of Southern Blvd. and Royal Palm Beach Blvd at 251 Royal Palm Beach Blvd., Royal Palm Beach, FL 33470 .   Phone 561-904-6826
