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.

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.

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?

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.
