Would I find this in the "Asian" sections of grocery stores or do I have to go to a specialty store?

Whole Foods should have it. In the "Asian" section.
(Disclaimer: I'm not anywhere near PDX)

I usually buy little packets at Fubonn, at the top-back-left of one of the middle aisles. Maybe that makes sense. Way cheaper than Whole Foods. Coops will likely have it, too. Oh, I bet Food Fight! does.

at asian markets:

The stuff at Whole Foods is so expensive. Those little packets of Telephone brand are about a dollar. You can find it at most of the Asian markets in town, or at Food Fight. I haven't seen it at regular grocery stores though.

Thanks for the responses...I already make a trip to Whole Foods twice a month for about two items, so that's a possibility. Otherwise I need to pay bus fare for a trip to Fubonn....lame. I kinda want to go to Fubon for the browsability though, such crazy, neat things!

herbivore keeps little packets of agar powder on the bookshelf next to the uncheese cookbook.

I bought some there a couple of years ago, but they only had it in long, hard strands. I ground it up to flake size in my food processor, but it was messy and not easy. I just did a product search on your link and didn't see it listed.

So, since I'm in need of it too and going to FoodFight! and Herbivore for holiday shopping/stocking stuffers tomorrow, I'll pick up some then. It's nice to know they both have it.
