English translation of an Asian grocery store name

I've been a fan of this local Asian grocery for years, and I'm still stumped by the name.  It has a tendency to offend the netnanny on my corporate email.

There's a non-English line of text on the sign, in what I assume is the owner's native language.  I suspect Vietnamese -- am I right?  Can anyone tell me what it says?   That would probably be a better way to narrow down what the name really means than just going to the internet!

Thanks all!

[Edit: thank you folks, we have a winner -- muckefuck says it means "Asia East". Thanks!]
