I found banana leaves in Milan!!!

Banana leaves and bitter melon

My big score of the day: a package of fresh banana leaves and a vegetable gourd that was labeled as balsam pear. I’ve always known this as pariya or bitter melon, but the name goya is also common among local folks in Hawaii. The tiny grocery store is just a few steps away from the metro and I was surprised at how bright and clean it was compared to other shops just like it. Shelves are stocked top to bottom with an astounding variety of ingredients and the owner is very kind and helpful.
