TIA

    Try Sunrise Market @ 9th st. & 3rd Ave. 2nd fl. (not the best best, but suitable and well priced).

      Oh, for the best best, maybe Takashimaya on 5th.

      Pearl River mart is the best, but it is a couple of blocks below Houston

        H Mart in Korea Town (32nd bet 5/6 ave)

        Or if you would venture below Houston, Kam Man on Canal st has an excellent selection.

          I realize the OP asks above Houston, but for anyone interested, the best place to find an array of quality Chinese-type chopsticks is at a specialty store in Chinatown, 50 Mott Street.
