Village Voice's Description
Ichiban (kind-of) means awesome in Japanese, which is fitting for this candy store, even though itas not Japanese; itas a Hong Kongabased company that sells Japanese and Chinese sweets all over the world. This small, impeccable store has an insane variety of treats, including salty snacks like mini roasted crabs and spicy squid rings. But their specialty is preserved fruit. Speaking of plums alone, there is sour plum, salted plum, seedless whole plum, cream plum, iced mint plum, mini menthol plum, slim plum, ginseng plum, and tea plum. Luckily, if youare not sure which variety of preserved plum is for you, you can sample them all.
