Kaffir Lime Leaves? Where to buy?

Does any one know where in the East Bay you can buy Kaffir Lime Leaves? Do they go by another name? I've been checking all the asian markets.

  1. Check this thread. Berkeley Bowl carries them, I believe.

    1. Try Tuk Tuk on University in Berkeley?

      1. Monterey Market has them some times. They are now called Makrut limes now, I think.

          Good to know that Berkeley has found a politically correct name for them.

        2. May Kong or Lao Market will have lime leaves, holy basil, thai chilies, etc. They are next door to each other on International Blvd/16th Ave.

          May Kong
          1613 International Blvd, Oakland, CA 94606

          Lao Market
          1619 International Blvd, Oakland, CA 94606

          1. 99 Ranch in El Cerrito has them I think.
            Alternatively, I bought my own tree from Home Depot a couple of years ago and it has since thrived in my backyard!

              I just came from Berkeley Bowl & they do indeed have them. I didn't notice the price though.
