Sichuan Ingredients

I just bought Fuchsia Dunlop's "Land of Plenty" and now I'm realizing how needy I am for the ingredients she uses in her book. Sichuan chili bean paste, fermented black beans, etc. Any suggestions on where I might pick up these ingredients? I live in East Dallas. Do you think that Asian market across from Jimmy's might have this stuff? I can't remember that name of that establishment and I've only walked through once. I need Chinese stuff!

  1. Best bet is Hong Kong (Dallas/Garland area), Asia World, May Hua (Plano) or the one in Richardson Chinatown as all of those are Chinese. The one across from Jimmy's is more Viet/Burma/Loa. You possibly could find it there but you would have to translate it from Viet.

    1. I find that the Korean markets, like Super H in Carrollton or KoMart have more of the sichuan ingredients.

      Here are additional resources at Dallas Public Library

      Where in DFW have you found good sichuan food eating out?

        Little Sichuan in Plano (Legacy and 75) has Sichuan owners as does Sichuanese Cuisine in Plano (Park and Coit)
