I had some jasmine rice at a restaurant recently and loved it. I asked the waiter and he said it is Buddha brand. Ever since then, I have been looking for it locally, but I have had no luck at stores including Berkeley Bowl, Ranch 99, Andronico's, Safeway, TJ, Mi Tierra and a number of others. Anyone there knows where to get it? I see it online, but it seems silly buying rice online: http://www.amazon.com/Buddha-Jasmine-....

    as you know buddha brand is distributed by sun lee from southern ca. look in southeast asian markets in oaktown, not chinese ones. look at the ones catering to the vietnamese chinese/laotian populace not to the ones serving hong kong/cantonese/taiwanese......
    most of the markets on international ave. will have it. some in main chinatown may have it.
