Hi Kirk,

LOL... I'm not reading *all* of your posts... I have to work, too!

Thanks for the links to the other VD posts. Interesting reading. FWIW, I find the pungency seems to lurk just inside the doorway, and that it's stronger on sunny late afternoons (when the light beats in through the front windows) and on humid days.

Note also that about a week ago, Vien Dong had live Maine lobster at $9.99/lb. Not cheap, but each one I lifted from the tank had to be in the 2-3 pound range, and *that* makes them special.

Does anyone know if Vien Dong carries Brazilian products? I'm looking for guarana soda, yuca flour, chocolates. Do you know where to find?

K Robert - Check out Tropical Star, they have a small market, and if you can't find what you need there, they may be able to refer you somewhere.

vien dong is a great store it is even attractive to a growing number of hispanics for its quality sea food and vast selection. i see more and more hispanics every time i buy my seafood.
