there are two Vietnamese food stores on Walworth Road
, between East St Market and Morrisons (I think!) on the market side of the road - can't remember the names. They can be hit and miss but good fun and they are very helpful - usually the person on the till doesn't understand much English so that adds to the fun. Always full of Asian customers so a good sign. You need to know your vegetables as they are displayed without names or only written in Vietnamese!!
I find it more dependable to pop into Gerrard St, Chinatown where there are two huge excellent asian grocers
