When you pull into the Fubonn Shopping Center, it's seriously hard to believe that this used to be PCC Southeast. Walk inside, and you're in a Asian mini-mall of established restaurants, shops, and stalls... and of course, the Fubonn Grocery.

Fubonn is named for the Cantonese phrase for wealth and health, and they are a full service SE Asian grocery along the lines of Uwajimaya, just on a slightly smaller scale. They have a deli with $1.75 bánh mì sandwiches as well as hot and cold prepared foods; huge and beautiful produce and meat areas, and just about everything you'll need for Vietnamese or Chinese cooking. For example: fresh noodles. Fubonn stocks bánh canh, bánh bot loc, hu tieu xao, and bánh tam—and that's just the rice noodles. There's also yakisoba, udon, mì hoành thánh (egg wonton noodles) and mì trung gà (thin egg noodles). Need a stewing hen? Duck heads? Bung? They've got 'em.

The live seafood selection is better at Uwajimaya, but Fubonn is clearly still gearing up.
