...You can buy happiness on Aisle 6.

OMG, the new Asian supermarket on the corner of Braker and Lamar is fantastic. It's easily the size of one of the new large HEBs, and SOO full of asianny goodness. Wow.

It still doesn't have the dried yams that I'm addicted to, though. Those seem to be rares, along with timber wolves and Mox Cubic Zirconiums.

The produce selection's smaller than HEB and much weirder, but the prices--when the selection overlaps--are competitive. Better on some things.

They sell jellyfish. Yay!

They also sell happiness. It cost a little much, six dollars, so I didn't get any, but everyone's getting happiness for christmas.

that one's the best :)

have you been to the one off peyton gin (near ghetto target and a yummy dim sum restuarant?)? it's apparently a favorite amongst Laotians (a long story, involving the pedicurist at super walmart and a recent california emigre'.
also, there's a nice (but little, but PACKED) one next to thor's hammer off spicewood.

Oh, yes, that...was...my favorite (on Peyton Gin). This brand new one is my favorite.

The Peyton Gin one is nice, it's got a really great selection and it's next to a decent Target, so pretty convenient shopping. It's a little dirty, though.

I like the one on Airport and Lamar--it's got the best snacks, including the dehydrated yams that I lurve.

The one on 183 near Thor's is pretty cool--best thing I'll say about it is that it's very clean, and the restaurant makes the place smell nice, which is pretty unique in asian grocery stores, but the selections not great and it's a bit far for me.

There's a pretty one near Justin and Lamar, close to HAlf Price Books--it's not so big, but it's very neat and has some unusual ingredients--but everything there I found at this new one.

Jellyfish is yummy. If you want to try before you buy, go to "Mandarin House" on Lamar and Ohlen, and ask for their "Authentic menu". Its one of the appetizers... nyum! :9
