London SW: Good Vietnamese, where to buy short ribs of beef and gigantes beans

I'm a bit slow on the uptake, so it's taken us a year since we moved to the UK to figure out that this resource is here. Glad to have found you!

We've traveled across London to get Vietnamese food north of Liverpool St., but is there some to be recommended in SW London?

Two things we're having trouble buying here: Dried greek beans (known as gigantes, or the even more enticing, megalosperma) and short ribs of beef. The latter we've seen at Whole Foods but would love to find another source closer to home. Also, I'm feeling stupid and can't identify another UK cut of beef (other than oxtails, which my kids won't pick the meat out of) that is outstanding for braising.

Thanks in advance,
