I am figuring Sunset park, but I'm wondering if anyone has a specific recommendation. I want to try some recipes from Hot Sour Salty Sweet (this month's cookbook - southeast asian)...some things I am looking for:
Fermented bean paste (dao jiao)
fresh rice noodles, or sheets
Thai fish sauce
as well as other basic things like black vinegar and dried shrimp, which I know I can get probably anywhere in any chinatown.
Feel free to make suggestions for Manhattan as well, as I will post this there too.
