Particularly looking to buy things like fish sauce, hot sauces, shao xing (cooking sherry), tamarind soup base, star anise, Japanese short-grain rice for a reasonable price. Willing to drive anywhere btwn. SC and Watsonville.
If such a market does not exist, then what general market has the best "international" section? If I decide to wait until a trip to San Jose which has an overwhelming selection of Asian markets, then which store would you recommend?
