Anyone willing to share their favorite Asian grocery/market in CT?

I haven't seen this topic posted elsewhere, but if I missed it--my apologies.

I'm curious to know fellow Nutmeggers' Asian market of choice in terms of variety and price. I've only been to Food Star in Hamden, Asian Supermarket in Milford and A Dong in West Hartford (my favorite). A Dong was recommended to me by my Japanese aunt who goes there periodically to stock up. Compared to the other stores I've visited, their selection and price is impressive, but I'm looking to try other locations around CT.

I'm particularly interested to know if anyone's been to Oriental Pantry on Orange St in New Haven. I've heard they're very expensive, but am willing to try it out if they stock any Japanese or Korean items the other markets are lacking.

Thanks in advance!
