Purchasing Vietnamese coffee filters (phin) in south bay stores?
Any suggestions for peninsula or SJ markets or stores that stock them appreciated. I haven't seen them. Also, any recommendations for Vietnamese markets (could be the same place to get phin)?
My apologies if this is supposed to go elsewhere. This spot seemed logical since it's bay area specific.
I bought a Vietnamese coffe filter at Lions in San Jose (south east corner of Tully & King, not far from Eastridge Mall.)
I buy lots of non-perishible items at Lion, food items and some kitchen tools. Fun to browse. Cheap prices.

There is a Viet market that is next to Grand Century, but I don't love the produce/meats.
I prefer the little market that is in the same complex as Banh Cuon Tay Ho #8 on Senter. It is smaller, but the overall quality is much better. Plus, they have a little takeout counter with awesome housemade beef balls.
You should be able to find the filters at either market, and I think there is a housewares shop in the mall. (Weirdly, most of grand century mall's real estate is taken up with jewelry stores.)
