shopping for ingredients in chinatown

i live quite close to the chinatown in brooklyn and have spent many weekend days browsing at the many supermarkets in chinatown... although i'm intrigued by all the different foods i see in the stores (especially all the different green vegetables), i don't know how to cook with any of these... it would help if i could even identify what they are in english so i can look up recipes online, but all the signs are in chinese. i'd really like to cook more than bok choy and eggplant (two things i can easily recognize) -- so please let me know if there are any chinatown favorite ingredients/produce that you've found and the best way to prepare them! i'm open to suggestions on all products that can be found in these markets - produce, meats, sauces, dried foods, seafood,... please try to describe the items fully if you don't have an image to append. thank you for your help!
