Looking for more interesting grocery stores

mejesster | Jan 23, 2012 08:14 PM

Does anyone have any favorite grocery-type stores (especially specialty shops like butchers or fishmongers) that they go to for interesting, non-prepared foods?

I'm always on the lookout for places to find great ingredients. I regularly shop at Whole Foods, Giant, Trader Joes, H-Mart and my local farmers' markets. However, I find that there are a lot of ingredients out there that can be tough to find and that there is a real dearth of great fish/meat counters. For instance, it's really tough to find scallops in the shell, precisely labeled cuts of beef/veal, offbeat mushrooms (I've never seen a fresh porcini anywhere in the area), Japanese mirin that wasn't mostly corn syrup, kaffir lime leaves and more.
