Source for tua nao in the Bay Area
Anybody know where I can get tua nao (ทัวเน่า) in the Bay Area, preferably East Bay? Talking about the fermented soybeans, either the basic beans or the pounded/dried brown discs, used in Shan cooking and called for in many recipes in Naomi Duguid's "Burma" cookbook.
I haven't noticed the dried cakes anywhere, though I just recently started looking. I know that commercial fermented soybeans and/or fermented soybean paste are available many places, (including the place in Berkeley at University and McGee, which I assume is Pla2 everyone else is referring to), as well as Sontepheap Market (14th ave at International) and Lao Market (between 15th-16th). Lao Market also has their own homemade fermented soybeans with chili in one of the refrigerators.
