Asian markets in Flushing - your favorites?

I love shopping in Asian supermarkets, and since we've been getting out to Flushing more often lately (many thanks to scoopG and Lau here), have been thrilled to set foot in some new ones - the Great Wall on Northern Blvd and the large Chinese mmarket on Kissena, and the Hong Kong Supermarket on Main St. The HK Market has a wider range of non-Chinese Asian ingredients than the other two (and rather bizarrely is the only place I've noticed carrying scrapple in their frozen food section, what the heck?) It also has a whole range of pickled chilis for Sichuan food which were very much sought after during the Dunlop month, including big jars of the brand with the cute little enraged red pepper on the label, and a brand labeled Super Hot from Taiwan which I will get next trip (we were weighed down by tons of leftovers from A Taste of Shanghai). Are there other places we're missing?
