What's good at the Asian grocery?

There's a giant Korean supermarket not terribly far from where I live (the mega Hmart in Burlington).

This is pretty much a pan-Asian free-for-all, so if you have a favorite Indonesian mustard, or an unforgettable Cambodian pickle, please share here. Bonus points for sous-vide-able items!
