Where can I take a friend from San Antonio that wants to get some Vietnamese 'staples' while visiting this weekend? Any restaurant ideas nearby the markets would be good, too. Thanks!

    There is a gigantic mall west of beltway 8 at the intersection of bellaire and boone. It is called Hong Kong Mall, which in my opinion has the biggest vietnamese/chinese supermarket (with the best selection) in Texas. There you will find a lot of restaurants that serve pho, vermicelli dishes and vietnamese sandwiches. Going anywhere west on bellaire from the beltway is considered "Little Saigon." Everywhere on the east is "Chinatown." Hope this helps. You should really only go here for authentic vietnamese/chinese food. Mostly everywhere else seems americanized.
