Rolla MO - Asian markets/ ingredient sourcing

hill food Oct 23, 2009 10:37 AM

I know of resources in STL, but with an upcoming extended stay in that part of the world, I was wondering if there is anything closer.

Of course a regular grocery store would have rice and soy, but I'm thinking of things like fish sauce, chili garlic paste, rice stick etc.

    With such a good engineering/science/technology school, with an international reputation, I would expect an higher than expected number of Asian international students. Quick search on the UMR website turned up a Chinese Students & Scholars Association (CSSA), Chinese Students Association (CSA), India Association, International Students Club, Korean Students Association, Saudi Students Association,
    Thai Students Association, and Turkish Students Association, among others. I think I'd start there.

      thanks, that was sort of my hunch, but didn't know where to start.

      Not sure if there are any asian markets in Rolla as I haven't been in a couple of years since my dad died (I think there used to be one on Hwy 63 near the Campus/Kingshwy area), but there are over by Fort Wood which is about 20-30 miles west just off of I-44.
