A guy I spoke with at Lotte Plaza at Fairfax Circle said they have them. Does anyone know of other sources?

    Hanh ah Reum, Super H, Grand Mart - any of the Korean or Japanese stores should have them.

      I tried GrandMart last night (in Centreville). The guy said they didn't have them. I was a bit surprised. Having done a bit of Googling, I now have some alternate names (konjac noodles, konnyaku noodles, etc) and also a better idea where to find them in the store. They are apparently packed in water, not dry, so I was wasting my time in the dry noodle aisle at GrandMart.

      Grandmart in Sterling has them in a refrigerated case near the miso. You can also get larger blocks of shirataki--I am pretty sure one of the Iron Chef episodes used them.

        While we're at it, anyone know where to get them in Baltimore? Trader Joe's in Towson totally let me down, and I haven't seen them in any of the standard grocery stores.

          I'd try the Hanh Ah Rheum or Grandmart in Catonsville.

            Thanks for the suggestion! I will also answer my own question by saying that I found them in the Mt. Washington Whole Foods this afternoon.

          Just wanted to report that I found them at the Super H Mart in Fairfax. They are near the dairy products on the far left. I bought two packs of the noodles, but they carry the stuff in blocks too. We're looking forward to trying them!

            I was in one of the Trader Joes here in No VA the other day, I think it was the one at Bailey's Crossroads, and noticed that they have small packages of them in the cooler case by the Tofu dogs, etc.
