Signs you need to get out of New York more
"You can find it at any Chinese grocery store." --Alan Harding, on his show Cookin' in Brooklyn.
I forget what ingredient he was referring to, but come on, guy. This show is on Discovery Home; it has a national audience. I grew up in Indiana. I don't think there's a Chinese grocery story in the entire state. It's entirely possible that the only Chinese grocery stores in all of the midwest are in Chicago, if any. And I'm sure most of the country is the same way.
