Dynasty Supermarket - 68 Elizabeth Street (Mixed)
Isles and isles of authentic Asian groceries. Pungent smells of fish, bok choy, noodles, dumplings, and tons of stuff that you'll just stare at and wonder what the heck it is. A great introduction to the variety available in Asian cuisine. Go to the refrigerated section, and you will find $2.00 tins of various pre-prepared grab and go items, like bean curd and garlic octopus. Sometimes they give out free samples, too!
