Li Hing Mui and Crack Seed
We are visiting San Francisco and Napa Valley for about 4-5 days. I am looking for Li Hing Mui powder and a good crack seed store (chinese preserved fruits). We are staying by the Airport and will have a car. Anyone know where I can find these?
Wonderful food, 2035 irving st. (415)-731-6889 has some chinese fruits in bulk. mandarin speakers
sweetheart cafe, 909 grant ave, (415)262-9989 might have fruits, oaktown has them
li hing mui powder may be found in hawaiian/japanese stores
Uoki K. sakai, 1656 post st, (415)921-0514 popped up as a reference.
You will find Ling Hing Mui powder at 99 Ranch. It is typically located next to the Mexican spices aisle. It is imported from Taiwan and comes in a very small packet and they're about $1.29 for a small bag. BTW, Ling Hing Mui powder added to kettle corn is sooooo good.

As you're staying near the airport (I'm assuming SFO) I'd try Takahashi in San Mateo. They carry all kinds of Hawaiian goods and I'm sure you'll find your li hing mui powder there. While they don't have crack seed in bulk, they do have a pretty good selection of packaged ones.

Thanks to all who responded. I will check them out.
It turns out I am not staying near the airport anymore. Hubby has booked us in at the Best Western in Napa. So, any place in Napa that might carry Li Hing Mui powder or good crack seed stores?
