  1. Sunset Park Brooklyn . . .
    Not exclusively Vietnamese, but lots of the groceries are pan-Asian in their product line, and the Vietnamese sandwich shops all carry some stuff, like tamarind.
    Hong Kong Market on 8th Ave at 62nd St has a big selection.

    Ditto the Manhattan Chinatown stores, and I'm sure many in QNS.

    1. re: pitu

      recommend Hong Kong Supermarket, in sunset park, as above. Look in the back left corner of the store for some specifically vietnamese herbs and for a freezer with the meats also some nearby aisles and end racks have the roasted rice powder,various fermented fish products, etc. Some of the smaller groceries also carry stuff with a Vietnamese focus but its more spotty.

    2. I know you are looking in the outer boards, but there is a Viet grocery on Laffayette below Grand on the west side of the street. some produce, tons of packaged/canned/frozen stuff.
      I go there for Ca Phe Sua packets (instant 3-in-one vietnamese coffee), frozen banana leaves and fried rolls.
