Brown Rice Vermicelli in Calgary?

Does anyone know where I can get brown rice vermicelli in Calgary?

  1. I've seen it at the Sunnyside Market in Kensington (across from the Safeway, beside the C-train station). Haven't been there recently, so I'm not sure if they still carry it. But you might also try any of the natural foods stores in the city, like Community Natural Foods, Amaranth, or Planet Organic.

      Thanks, I'll check out Sunnyside Market.

      I've tried Amaranth and they don't have it there.

          Oh well I'm in Vancouver! Maybe phone ahead to the Macleod Trail location? I always found their Asian section pretty good. Or check out T&T.

            I've seen them in Edmonton Superstores so I assume that the Calgary ones would have it in the Asian food aisle too.

      2. Community Natural Foods carries a great brand of rice noodles called SOBA KING, they are in really pretty frosted packaging. They have a wild rice noodle, as well as a corn noodle blend and a really yummy pumpkin ginger flavour. They are a tad expensive, but they have good tooth, for GF noodles that is huge! I make them all the time, and i think they are the best rice noodles by a mile.

            I did find some brown rice vermicelli in Safeway-Asian section. It's a new item that they've brought in. I'll give it a try next week and see if I like it.

              The brown rice vermicelli I bought from Safeway is pretty good but pricey.
