Where can I find Asian groceries in Park Slope?

I am trying to make the Pork Lo Mein from America's Test Kitchen. It's got lots of Asian ingredients like hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, five spice powder, sesame oil, and most importantly, Chinese egg noodles. Do I have to go to Chinatown for these ingredients or is there a local bodega that carries these ingredients?

  1. most of the well stocked korean grocery stores have this type of item. For example the Sea Land store on Flatbush Ave nr 7th. The 5th Ave Key might have some of them too, but Id start with the Koreans.

    1. I have bought Chinese egg noodles from Natural Land at 322 Flatbush Avenue (btw Sterling Pl & 7th Avenue . They definitely carry sesame oil and probably those other ingredients you need, too. Good luck.

      P.S. The Egg noodles are on the shelves opposite to the fish counter.

      1. re: FoodWine

        note: FoodWine and I are talking about the same store. I just have forgotten its correct name. If you are farther down in the slope there are a couple other groceries - one at Garfield, I think, and one near Berkeley that you might also check tho not as big.
