Hello Houston foodies! You probably understand when I say my craving is past the point of being able to ignore it. Lately my craving for natto is making me spend a ridiculous amount of time googling "buy natto online" and reading about how to try to make my own at home. My two attempts were failures. I just want to be able to run out and buy a couple dozen cases whenever I feel like it, you know?

So does anyone know of a store that has it in stock recently? I mean the frozen little square packages of ready to eat natto. Hong Kong market on Scarsdale quit carrying it some time ago and it looks like they aren't going to restock it any more. There isn't even a spot on the shelf for it any more.

I've been to My Quang, Sun's Club, Viet Hua, and a couple of others in Clear Lake, but they don't seem to have it unless they stocked it more recently than my last visits. Last time I got some was a year ago at a Komart in Dallas while on a visit up there, so by now I am getting pretty sad missing it.

I live near Galveston and can't afford to drive my 21-year-old gas guzzler all over the greater Houston area hoping to bump into natto at one of the many Asian markets around Westchase or Spring Branch etc., so if anyone knows of a store that for sure sells natto, I would really appreciate it. Knowing which store to go to would help me out a lot.

Thanks for your input, hoping someone can contribute the information I need!
