A Whole Lot of Food

One of the cool things about when a new grocery store opens up it brings so many possibilities to a community.
The new Whole Foods in Germantown brings those possibilities to life. 
I have never seen how a grocery store comes from the ground up and seeing some shelves stocked and the shelf right next to it empty is really neat.
I got to meet the team who helps with the opening and they gave me a wonderful tour of the new Whole Foods.
The center piece when you walk in is this fabulous dry ageing show case that easily gives you a 360 view of the dry aging process.
The Whole Foods has like every grocery store, a meat and seafood section, a dairy section, a produce section.
They also have a crepe making section, where they do a verity of sweet and savory crepes.
They also have (my personal favorite of the whole tour)
A Ramen Bar!!!
Now you may know that I love ramen and that there are only 3 or 4 places to get ramen in Memphis and so finding a place that servers it is a big treat!
They also sever some really rock'n and cool sushi burritos,

Now you may be thinking a sushi burrito? Whats a sushi burrito? I definitely was very intrigued. The burritos are kinda hard to explain, but its like a hand roll that you would find in Japan.
The sushi burritos are filled with either fish or chicken or  tofu wrapped in rice and then wrapped in seaweed, they come out to be, well, the size of a burrito.
The sushi burritos were very tasty.
They had several flavors of ramen, including Kimchi, Tonkatsu, spicy Tonkatsu, and many more.
The ramen was very tasty the egg on the ramen can be hard to get the perfect texture with the jelly yoke, the broth was flavorful and delicious super tasty.

The next section is the charcuterie the meats and cheeses were very good they had some smoked goat cheese and other wonderful cheeses and also a very interesting vegan charcuterie.
The Whole Foods also has a custom made espresso machine

So go to the Whole Foods and bring your appetite and then think about something creative for dinner.
