I need Vietnamese Supermarket recommendations, anywhere in the City. I live in Jackson Heights, but love trolling Asian supermarkets throughout the city.
Specifically, what I am looking for is Pepper Sa-Te sauce, Huy Fong of Sriracha sauce fame made a Pepper Sa-Te sauce, but stopped 10 or more years ago.
I still have a half bottle I treasure and dole out sparingly...
After 10 years of hunting throughout NYC, I found a similar sauce of in all places, Easton, PA, where my wonderful Aunt Selma lives.
There in the Viet Hoa Oriental Grocery Store ( at 427 Northampton Street, Easton, PA 18042, 610-515-9935), I found Tia Chieu Sa-Te made by Vi Hao Food Co. It has a blue lid, and a unicorn on the insignia. Typical plastic container, with a wide flat lid, like what Huy Fong's non-squeeze bottle products come in.
But Easton is the only place I have found this. Until a few months ago there was no joy on the net, but recently stores in California have begun to offer Pepper Sa-te Sauce on line, but it's expensive to ship liquids, and spillage is possible.
Any suggestions for a good Vietnamese grocery, anywhere in The City?
