Asian grocery in queens?
I'm taking a little bike excursion out for thai food at Sripraphai in Woodside today. I figured while I was there, or on my way back, I should take advantage and try to stop into an Asian grocery to get some staples. I'm sure I could walk around and find something but it would be easier to have a few options in mind. Anyone have good recommendations for places in Woodside, Elmhurst, Sunnyside, etc.? Thanks in advance!
Chinese -- Hong Kong Market in Elmhurst; the one next to Hong Kong Market in Elmhurst; Pacific Market in Jackson Heights; there's also a smaller one in Elmhurst on Broadway that sells some South East Asian items
Korean -- H-Mart in Woodside, Chong Hap in Jackson heights
I also think there's a store next to Sripraphai that sells some Thai stuff.
If you're also including South Asian in your "Asian grocery" category, Patel Brothers and Subzi Mandi in Jackson Heights.

re: Miss Needle
Yeah, that is probably The Great Wall, not bad but not as conveniently located.
There is also Top Line, a smaller supermarket on Broadway, halfway between Pacific and HK. IMHO, there is no single best: it all depends on what you are shopping for.
E.g., I think NY Supermarket has better vegetables, except for bitter melon which is better @ HK. The latter has better sausages, but the sauces/condiments section is a tie. Top Line might have the freshest fish (depending on the day of the week), but their selection is narrow and other seafood is just so-so. You got the picture...
