Thai//Vietnamese/Asian Grocery in DC or Arlington
Hi- I am looking for a grocery store or shop that sells tapioca balls and really good thai tea. Are there any such places in metro-accessible areas of DC or NOVA? Thank you!
are you looking for ready made thai tea or a tea mix?
for thai tea mix, there is a thai grocery store next door to bangkok 54 on columbia pike in arlington. it's related to the restaurant so they also have food packed to go in their refrigerated section. they definitely sell the tea mix there because i've bought it there before and they probably also sell tapioca balls, too. i don't think the grocery store sells the tea ready made but i'm sure you can get it to go from the restaurant. it's $2.50, i believe.
There is a very small Japanese Market at 17th and U street NW called Hana Market - I don't know if they would have what you are looking for but that's the only Asian grocery that I can think of that is easily accessable.
The grocery store in Eden Center should have stuff in theory, though I don't know for sure. It's a 20 minute walk from the metro station, which is just barely "metro-accessible." A relatively pleasant walk, though. And then you can combine the trip with banh mi or other Vietnamese eating.
