Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Does anyone know of an Asian market in Montreal (perhaps in Chinatown) that sells tofu shirataki noodles? These are low fat, low carb noodles from Japan that are packed in liquid. I've been looking for them with no luck and wondered if anyone knows of a local source. Thanks-
Have you tried Miyamoto on Victoria in Westmount? They are an excellent source for all things Japanese.
I just saw Shirataki noodles, House brand (same as I used to get in the states), at a grocery store here in Montreal. Unfortunately, I can't remember where! It wasn't an Asian market, though. I think maybe it was the grocery store underneath the La Cite building near McGill. Can anyone confirm? I'll check next time I'm in the neighborhood.
They also have something called "tofu noodles" at Rachelle Bery in the Plateau. I haven't tried them but I'm guessing that they're the same thing as Shirataki noodles.
I found these recently at the Korean grocery on Sherbrooke in NDG. I tried them as a pasta substitute and they were pretty awful. The taste and texture were weird and the sauce didn't cling to them.
I did however try the more easily available regular shirataki noodles and they're a great sub for bean thread and yam noodles.
