Tamarind Syrup

  • t

Cardullo's in Harvard Square used to carry Tamarind Syrup. Can anyone tell me where I might find this delectable sweet anywhere? The Boston area is my first choice but anywhere in NE is just fine.

  1. Polcari's..a spice shop in the North End has it..corner of Salem and Parmenter. What do you use it for?

      Thanks for the info. I make a cold drink with club soda and lime. It's Fantastic

        I bought a bottle of it a few years ago..for a recipe that I never made. If you can't find it you can have my unopened bottle...unless of course I try that drink and fall in love with it..:)

    2. I buy tamarind concentrate (pulp and water) at Super88 at the Southbay Center - They may have the tamarind syrup (I don't think they're the same?)

      1. the middle eastern markets in watertown usually have tamarind syrup. try arax market:

        Arax Market 617/924-3399. 603 Mt Auburn, Watertown

        If they don't have it, there are many other middle eastern markets in the same area that usually have it.
