Where can I find a Thai Grocery Store
- Nadia Sep 8, 2004 06:37 PM
I am looking for a Thai grocery store. Preferably in Toronto Proper, however, I am willing to go to the burbs.
I don't know of any strictly Thai stores. But the larger Asian supermarkets on Spadina, south of Dundas, carry an excellent range of Thai groceries. I took a course in Thai cookery last year, learning how to make most dishes from scratch. I found everything I needed there -- fresh and packaged!
Are there specific items you can't find?
Quoting from an earlier thread:
It has moved to:
Vientiane Trading Co.Ltd.
51B Jutland Rd, Toronto, On M8Z 2G6
Tel, 416 743 2911
Fax 416 743 8004
Jutland runs between Kipling and Islington, a few blocks north of the Queensway.
I haven't been to the new location yet, so I have no idea if everything is set up and open... the move appeared to be a bit chaotic. I'd call them to see if the limes are in...
Hope this helps!
The store on Broadview isn't Thai, but Vietnamese. They have all the stuff you need. Actually I find the big Chinese grocery store on the south side of Gerrard, at the east end of Chinatown II strip to often be better for lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves. Stuff is fresher. They also have frozen galangal and banana leaves from Thailand. I used to live in Bangkok so I'm a bit fussy, but I usually can find everything I need out there.
