These are some some of the tools that I have at home for cooking some of my most favorite Lao, Vietnamese, and Thai recipes.
The great thing about the Internet is that you can order everything and have it sent right to your doorstep. Otherwise, you would have to venture to your local asian grocer crossing your fingers that they have what you need. I hope this helps you on your culinary journey for making delicious foods from southeast Asia. Check out my recipe links above for more ideas!
