What should I add to a growing Asian pantry?

suby | Jan 9, 2010 10:31 AM

I've been cooking a lot more Asian food lately, and am trying to stock the pantry with essentials. I've got the basic condiments that you can find at most regular grocery stores, like fish sauce, rice vinegar, wasabi, miso, siracha, etc. I'm going to make a trip to a huge (and sort of intimidating) Asian grocery ... what should I get that will keep -- either in the pantry or fridge -- for a long time?
I'm thinking:
Fermented black beans
Kombu seaweed
Kochujang (sp?) - Korean hot sauce

Other ideas?
