[VIETNAMESE/EAST-ASIAN] Imagine the full spectrum of groceries available at Uwajimaya or Fubonn crammed into a space the size of a large convenience store. That's Thanh Thao Market. There's a wide selection of fresh fruits (helpfully labeled in Vietnamese), frozen seafood and Asian pantry staples, as well as a meat counter and selection of prepared foods. Try the cha lua, a pork pâté wrapped in banana leaves and made in-house. To save customers a trip to Southeast Portland, Than Thao also carries a good selection of treats from the well-loved An Xuyen Bakery on Foster Road.

Grocery list: Fifty-pound bags of jasmine rice, durian fruit, bao mix and coconut in all forms: drinks, dried, milk and frozen bars.
