Best Of 2013: Ethnic Market

The last time I wandered San Francisco's Chinatown, I felt like I'd walked into a different country. Visiting the Asian Pacific Market can have a similar effect, only instead of very crowded streets, you'll find roomy aisles and, thankfully, many English translations. Marvel over ingredients common to Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Japanese and other international cuisines, or just pick up some fish sauce, tamarind paste and rice noodles to get quickly on your way to pad Thai. There are also plenty of sweets and snacks, such as fish-flavored and kimchi crackers, green tea ice cream and durian candy. — Darcie Mankell
