Asian market in or around Marina del Rey?

I am putting together a recipe which will require some uniquely Asian ingredients. Does anybody know where I can find a good Asian market in or around the Marina del Rey area? Thanks so much!

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "Asian". Mitsuwa is a Japanese food store and probably won't carry items that would be uniquely Chinese or Korean or some other Asian culture.

      Sorry, this is a very fair point and I should have been more specific. Mitsuwa did, however, have everything I needed.

        Another choice is Nijiya on Sawtelle in West LA. While the store is smaller (and very cramped), their selection tends to be comparatively broader.
