Asian Markets in Arkansas.

When I have the time, I enjoy a spot of ethnic cooking.  The many years I've dabbled in historical food research has given me an appetite for trying all sorts of new things.  

Many of the items I utilize, I can't find in a staple Arkansas grocery store.  So here's a list of Asian markets for your own resources that might carry some of the more exotic items you can't find on Aisle 9 at Kroger.

Little Rock Greater Metropolitan Area:

* Recommended:  This is one of Sue Khoo's enterprises.

Recommended:  This is the tiny yet well-packed Japanese shop under Mt. Fuji.  I get my seaweed wraps here.

Recommended:  Fine selection of gifts and housewares as well as fresh vegetables, fish.  I get my banana leaves here.

Fort Smith:

Recommended.  Best Vietnamese store I have been to in Arkansas. 

Northwest Arkansas:

Seoul Oriental Foods
729 South School
Fayetteville, AR 72701
