The following herbs, vegetables, and fruits are common in Vietnamese dishes. If you are too far away from an Asian grocery store, many large American supermarkets sell a number of these items, and some grocers might even be willing to place an order for you. You can also order many items online through one of the ethnic grocers listed in the next appendix. But if you do have a chance to go to an Asian supermarket, by all means load up on fish sauce, chili paste, fermented shrimp paste, sesame seed oil, coconut milk, coconut soda, spices for pho, and as many varieties of dried noodles as you can find.
