Chinese supermarket buys?

Hi all
 
I've just discovered an enormous chinese supermarket/cash & carry near my house - I went there today for shirataki noodles and was overwhelmed by the fresh produce, frozen stuff and tinned/packaged aisles.
 
I wondered if there are any chinese staples or unusual items which would be great for a bodybuilding diet? Stuff we can't typically get in regular shops which I should snap up now I know where this place is?
 
There was a lot of white fish and dried meat/fish (like jerky) which is obvious...but I was thinking more along the lines of things I might not even know exists.
 
Let me know and I'll go back with a shopping list!
 
Nic

    udon noodles are good, wholewheat noodles made from buckwheat, very healthy and a great carb source if you can get them at a good price. rice you could get in bulk if youre a bulk buying fanatic, possibly efa sources like nuts in bulk (theyre a bugger to buy in small quantities from a cost POV) nut oils are good in a bb diet and great for stir frying because of the high smoke point so they wont spoil. stir fry veg is a good one very quick to prepare if youre time limited (literally seconds if the oil is hot enough). hopefully some of that was helpful!

    Cheers - bulk buying is a great idea - I was more thinking stuff I don't already know about though :) Like products/ingredients I just haven't come across before but are hidden gems of low carby protein goodness.
