Where Can I Buy Chinese Sesame Paste?
Am jonesing for some Cold Sesame Noodles NY style and all posts on the web, including here, say that Chinese Sesame Paste is key and way better and different from tahini. Hopefully it's cheaper too!
I live in Silverlake and went to two of the Filipino Seafood Markets on Vermont, but had no luck.
Honestly, it's doubtful that I'll schlep out to Monteray Park for this - can anyone suggest someplace in 323?
Thanks a bunch!
Give Wing Hop Fung in Chinatown a shot.

727 N Broadway 102, Los Angeles, CA 90012
You might try "A Grocery Warehouse" on Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park
1489 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
Otherwise in Chinatown Ai Hoa Market on Hill Street has it. I've bought it there. It's like $2.25 a bottle.
860 N. Hill Street
And the winner is... "A Grocery Warehouse"...! It was the closest to my house and the only place I had to go to. What a great store! Thanks so much for the tip. The manager was super helpful and also explained to me how to cook the fresh egg noodles I bought (you don't cook them, you just dip in boiling water to get the flour off).
I'm sure the other places are great to, but this was less than 10 minutes up Sunset Blvd for me.
