Agreed, it's a distinct and mainstream enough kind of store that it 
doesn't need to be prevalent globally to have its own tag.

For what it's worth, in the U.S., you'd tend to get rice from Asian 
specialty groceries and supermarkets. I don't recall seeing any rice 
shops in Vietnamese neighborhoods, but maybe they exist in other Asian 
immigrant communities. Almost by definition it would be considered an 
imports store, which would likely carry other imported foods.

(I'm not sure how to tag an imports store in general. Cost Plus World 
Market is apparently tagged shop=interior_decoration despite being where 
I used to get my Tim Tams. I did not use them for decoration.)
