where to buy piemientos del padron?
I would love to make my favorite tapas dish at home. Anyone know where I can pick up these tasty peppers??
Check out Garcia & Sons and De La Fuente in the Spanish enclave at the Ladbroke Grove end of Portobello Road. Garcia definitely sells pimientos de padron. Worth checking out these places for all their other Spanish produce - Garcia is the better known and has an adjoining tapas bar as of a couple of years back but I always preferred the smaller, lesser known De La Fuente and regularly picked up boquerones, lomo, jamon de serrano, jamon de jabugo, chorizo picante etc from there. Very friendly mother, father, son trio running the place.
