Affordable Macarons (french) and yummy banana loaf

Yes, it's a moist banana bread--not much flour though, may be that why she calls banana loaf.

Affordable Macarons (french) and yummy banana loaf

Linda's Bakery (9350-G Snowden River Parkway, Columbia MD, same mall w/ House of India & New York Deli). It has been opened for a month or so. Nothing much on the website, I hope she could post more pictures soon.

Affordable Macarons (french) and yummy banana loaf

Reference from livingsocials, I got to try affordable macarons for $12 per lb, how cheap! I used to pay $1.5 to $3 per pc in fancy french bakery, now full box of light macarons for less than $10. Not superb lil' sweet sandwich but it's definitely good for me--bakery addict.
I grew up in Thailand and have been craving for good banana loaf--soft and full flavor of banana. Yes, I found it here. First weeks I went back with Thai friends--they all love that banana loaf--my taste bud is still in good shape I guess. I don't care for cupcake because Goergetown CC is the only one in my mind. This place, the cupcake is not yet up to my par but cream puff & fruit napoleon are yummy. I think brownie is a bit to sweet but a friend put in microwave creating a lava brownie--she said it tastes better.
The owner is a nice Asian girl. She quits corporate job for bakery. So let's see if passion led her the right path :)0

Kecap Manis and Light Soy Sauce - Where to find in DC (city)

A popular is ABC brand sweet soy sauce (Kecap Manis) from PT Heinz Indonesia. You can find it in mostly Asian grocery store in MD,VA area. As for light soy sauce, there are so many brands available in American grocery store. All I remember regarding DC specialty grocery is in Chinatown but not sure if it still exists.

Horrible experience....I placed an order online (roborstir.com) right before Christmas, got back order for 4-6 wk. Last week I got email confirmation of shipment (2 months waiting) but Robostir overcharged me for shipping & handling of free strainers $27.96 ( 4 x $6.99)--this shipping &handling charge of free strainers was not on online invoice confirmation. Package is in transit, did not know what do I get yet but it's so awful. There is no email contact for customer service. Beware!! I gotta fight with them later!!

I ordered a couple through robostir.com almost 3 wk ago--checked status still says "back order-normally shipped 4-6 wk). Several people posted on blogs that it's a scam--I don't know yet. There is no charge posted to my credit card yet but its website doesn't look trustworthy.
