I find that most of the ingredients we use for Thai, Japanese and Chinese are very inexpensive compared to what is available from the minimal shelf space at the grocery. Some of the bulk spices are really cheap as well.

Mirin, fish sauce, garlic, fresh noodles, dried rice noodles, rice vinegar, dried mushrooms, sesame oil, miso paste, oyster sauce, chile sauce, canned lychees - staples for all types of Asian cuisine.

I don't have enough experience with different brand names to recommend one, except for Three Crabs fish sauce. Do check the labels for high-fructose corn syrup. I was surprised to see how many Asian condiments include it.

Shark Brand Sriracha blows away the garbage with the rooster on it. Red Boat 40°N fish sauce, by far the best.

Got the Shark, and am putting the Red Boat on the list! Thanks, NM!

Gojujang -- Korean hot pepper paste. It's awesome. Tasty and versatile.

Our house is stuffed to the gill with stuff from Asian markets, as my partner is Asian. So the Asian market is a go-to.

There is great debate over Shark Sriracha dauce among people who have time for such things. I'm not a fan.

I have 4 or 5 brands of fish sauce in my kitchen but my favorite brands are 3 Crabs and Tiparos. I like Squid and Golden Boy (but I love all Golden Boy products).

Also, the term "Oriental" offends some Asians .... Just sayin... :-)
