What can I get from the Chinese grocery store for an easy, delicious work lunch or snack?

I work very close to a chinese supermarket and want to start buying more breakfast, healthy-snack and lunch type items there to keep in my office.
Right now I'll get the occasional ramen bowl, packs of frozen greasy red bean cakes to heat in the toaster oven, and instant miso soup packets, but I'm looking to branch out.
I love getting ramen bowls because I can easily keep it in the drawer, pop off the top, and add hot water - and it's easy to eat at my desk. I'm not a huge wasabi/horseradish fan, but I do like other spicy flavors. I adore kimchee but don't want to keep a stinky jar in the work fridge. I have access to a shared mini-fridge, a toaster oven, microwave, and a water cooler with cold and hot water.
any ideas on what would make an easy tasty lunch from an asian grocery store?
