Made my first trek to 99 Ranch last weekend and what a blast! I have a great Asian market that I go to in SB, but obviously nothing like this! So, I've already enjoyed my fresh bean curd skin a couple of different ways, and I also discovered that it's really true: fresh water chestnuts are 100 times better than canned!

I also picked up some fake veggie meats and fish-type products, fresh (still warm) tofu, some cooking utensils, tea, snacks and sweets.

Here's my question: I shopped at the market in Westminster, which is a heavily Vietnamese area. So the store featured lots of Vietnamese products. Some things that I was hoping to find (recommended by a Chinese friend) weren't there. Can someone tell me which 99 Ranch features more Chinese items? There are lots in LA, but I prefer to shop in Orange County, because we go there frequently to visit family. If the LA stores are better, please make a recommendation.

Thanks!
