Hey, does anybody know if Trader Joe's stocks Chinese/Japanese specialty foods (I need chili paste and broad bean paste and some other things I know Wild Oats and Whole Foods don't usually carry, and there's no World Market near me.) But I don't feel like hauling my butt out to the TJs if they have no chili paste.
Even more preferentially, does anybody know of a good Hartford area (say, between Manchester and Farmington) independent Chinese grocery? I know where to find two Indian ones, but that's not going to help me with double black soy sauce and seaweed.
ETA Hah! There's an Asian grocery on Shield Street. Yay!
