I was in Rockville for a doctor's appointment, and thought about dropping by Kam Sam or Maxim. But no, I wanted to pick up some fresh fish, so I skipped those stops and went to my usual close-to-home haunts of Korean Korner and Han Ah Reum. However, I searched both stores for Sichuan peppercorns and couldn't find them in either place.
Did I just not spot them? And does anyone know of stores on this side of Montgomery County that definitely stock them?
