Going to an asian food shop for the first time tomorrow. Anything I should look for?

Look for some instant pho. It beats the pants off instant ramen. Also, they usually have weird canned fish varieties.

jesus, how many variations of soi sauce do you need?

It’s usually a catch all in the US since all the chinamen come from all over Asia.

Dried shrimp, dried shittakes, seaweed sheets if you like to make rice.

Pea leaves, palm sugar, fresh noodles.

Stay away from the sweets area. Try not to buy stuff made in china.

Silver Swan Soy Sauce (Flip, cheap but good)
Chinese Black Vinegar
Dried Kombu
Korean ramen (seems to be the best)
Chinese peppercorns
Bonito flakes
Kim Chee
Banana Ketchup

You don't need all that fancy gook shit. La choy soy sauce and other La Choy sauces or Annie Chung's stuff is fine. There's really no difference.

Thats not that much. I see other sauces mixed in. We have a huge "international" market here and they have a full 40ft aisle dedicated to nothing but soy sauce. Once you consider 3 or 4 sizes of 5 or 6 brands of 7 or 8 varieties from 9 or 10 countries you can see how it adds up.

Do these places usually have taro powder/tea or should I just order it online?

This. It's literally the only soy sauce I use now. Kikkoman and La Choy are basically liquid shit in comparison.

Get some Jimmy's sate sauce. Great with rice, noodles, stir fry, soup, or even on eggs for breakfast. Super potent flavour a jar lasts for ages.

I don't remember all the flavors my local store has but I'll buy one of each this week. I reckon it'd be hard to go wrong with mango.

Got this last week and it's alright, they're quite thick and I find the filling to be a bit too dry with the wafer but they're very nice dipped in coffee.

I bought the papaya milk one as a joke with a friend, we ended up drinking it all as the taste was really nice.

Some boards filter soy -> onion, but that'd end up being confusing here.
