Best Place to Shop for Eel 

Tink Hall

Surely one of the largest Asian grocery stores in the state, Tink Hall offers a bewildering array of Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese foods and ingredients, ranging from frozen sliced pork stomach in soy sauce to fresh durian, mangos, and persimmons. An entire aisle is devoted to dried noodles of every description. Fresh lemon grass and bok choy sprout from coolers, and fearsome live eels leer at passersby from inside their tanks. The store also sells chopsticks, rice steamers, stir-fry tools, and an assortment of lovely blue-and-white porcelain bowls. As for the wondrous ambiance -- that comes free with every purchase.
