Rebecca Wheeler, A Chicago Food Examiner, recently wrote an article for Examiner.com, a popular website, mentioning Tai Nam Market. In the Article, titled "Best ethnic markets and shops - far north side", she describes her list of the best ethnic markets. She talks highly of Tai Nam Market: "This is my go-to Vietnamese market when I am cooking anything Southeast Asian. They have a sizeable produce section and carry equipment basics like granite mortar and pestles. All the basics are here: coconut milk, fish sauce, chilies and lemongrass. They also carry excellent locally made tofu and wide rice noodles."
