Asian market around Gaithersburg/Rockville?

hamster Oct 22, 2010 10:17 AM

Planning a trip to Burma Road in Gaithersburg this Sunday and we're thinking it would be nice to hit an Asian market on the way back to DC. Is there a market that would be convenient on the way back to Washington?

    Burma Road is on Rt 355 in Gaithersburg. If you are driving back to DC on the same road, you will hit Maxims a few miles down. Also Kam Sam is a block over from Maxims on S. Washington Street. They are both Chinese groceries. You didn't say if you were going for lunch or dinner. If lunch, there would be no problem with these stores being open; but if dinner, you should check what time they close on Sundays.

      Has Burma Road moved? I thought it was just north of Shady Grove Rd., by the Goodwill Store. The Google map here on Chow shows it north of Montgomery Village Ave.

      If they have moved, you'll be near these two stores: an H Mart near Lake Forest Mall in Gaithersburg, on Lost Knife Rd. There is also a Grand Mart on Muddy Branch Rd., just west of 270. They're both great stores!

        No, it's by Goodwill. Neither the Hmart nor the Grand Mart are very far away though.

          Which is better, particularly for 1) Fish and 2) Vegetables, HMart or GrandMart?

            I don't really shop at either, except occasionally at H-Mart for Japanese

            Maxim and Kam Sam both have good fish and vegetables, although they are much
            smaller stores, but the best place I know for the best and freshest
            selection of fish and vegetables is the Great Wall on Gallows Road in Falls

            For Chinese, not pan-Asian, Maxims and Kam Sam, within a stone's throw of each other in Rockville, are the best.
