[DFW] New Asian Market in Carrollton

Just letting everyone know that the new Asian grocer on the southeast corner of Frankford & Josey in Carrollton opened last weekend. Carrollton Plaza Supermarket is a large market (bigger than May Hua in Plano). Most of the items seem to be geared towards Vietnamese cuisine, but the selection is large. Doesn't have as many bakery items as May Hua but has a nice selection of fresh seafood.
Hopefully new Asian restaurants will open soon around the supermarket (as this is usually the case). I had a rather unremarkable bowl of pho at Bon Mua Vietnamese Cuisine in that same shopping center (currently the only Asian restaurant there).
Also worth noting is that Asia World (off of Greenville in Richardson, same shopping center as Jen Chi & Genroku) has closed.
Thanks for the tip. As luck would have it, I had to drive up to Carrollton last night on other business and ended up about a mile from Carrollton Plaza Supermarket. Spent about an hour there and had a great time. Looks like they aren't fully stocked yet, but I did find some interesting items I hadn't seen before at other Asian markets, and some of their prices on kitchenware are the best I've ever seen. I picked up a pow wok, a ladle, and a sticky-rice steamer pot and basket for cheap. Too far away for regular visits, though.
KOMART. The cleanest and freshest asian market in Dallas. Geared towards Koreans more than so, but you see Chinese and Vietnamese people shopping there as well. The deli inside offers one-hell-of-a five dollar menu. Royal and 1-35. two block west of 35 on royal ln.
