We don't have one lically, so going to the asian store is an adventure!
Is there anything i could look for? Im mainly going for tofu, curry spices and any cool produce. I have been hankering for an asian pear since seeing one on CheapLazyVegan's video.
Anything trully cool I should try to find? This particular store is more chinese than korean or japanese.

I get my tofu from the regular grocery store. We have a couple of Asian stores nearby and I like to go to them just for the variety, but i never get tofu there. they sell their tofu in great big bins that are open and I don't trust it.

I went a little crazy there, but i did not buy any junk food for myself, not only did i not need any, but not all of them are labeled in english or very well.
I got some types of bokchoy, some asian pears, globe grapes. Firm tofu and soft (its all vacu-sealed like in a regular grocery store) white miso, gojuchang, black vinegar, chinese cooking wine, udons, bean threads, sushi flavoring packets with pickled veggies( for when im lazy), rice vinegar, roasted green tea, and a bunch more i cant remember off the top of my head.
