I have recently started on a diet and I am cutting down on my carbs. I have read in blogs on my dieting site about shirataki noodles being VERY low carb and low calorie while still being filling. I would like to try them, however, after searching online for where to buy them, I haven't found EXACTLY where they would be sold other than the very broad answer of "at an Asian food store". I live in Lauderhill and I am willing to travel as far as to Lauderdale Lakes, Fort Lauderdale, Davie, and / or Pembroke Pines. Also, if anyone has any tips and advice about the best brands and or recipes, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Food Town in Davie (Stirling Road and Davie Road) has them. Along with just about any other type of oriental noodle you would want.

      whole foods & the asian market across the street (441) from silver pond & saigon city.(not the one in that strip mall but directly across the street). they arent gross if you wash them thoroughly and parboil them and then use a strongly flavored sauce. but... now let me put this delicately... they do come out the same way they go in, so be aware of that.

        Whole Foods carries them, as does De-Lites in Fort Lauderdale...I have to warn you though, they are horrible, despite "Hungry Girl" raving about them!

          They actually have them at most Publixes in the produce section. Just call first.

              Cho A Dong market (4245 North State Road 7) might carry them, but I don't know for sure. Foodtown in Davie had them a few days ago (in the refrigerated section between the produce an the fish counter.)
