I love Szechuan cooking, and the delicious spicy bean/chili sauce is perhaps the best part. I'd love to bring it into my own kitchen.
I tried the H Mart in Annandale and couldn't find any, but of course H Mart is Korean. I know there's a Great Wall in Merrifield but that's a bit out of the way, so I hoped I could check if anyone has bought it there before, or if you know a better place that's closer to me in Alexandria.
Somewhere that I could order it online would potentially also be of interest, but I was discouraged from buying it on Amazon by the fact that the shipping on a $10 jar of doubanjiang is $9.50.
