Dried shrimp in Calgary?

My supply of dried shrimp has dried up. It's been so long since I bought these smelly suckers that I can't remember where I got them. I looked yesterday at T&T but no dice. My Som Tam won't be the same without them. Any leads appreciated!

  1. Odd, T&T should have it for sure, as would any Asian supermarket.

    I'm sure you can get some in Chinatown.. it's pronounced "ha mai" in cantonese.

    1. if t&t doesn't have 'em, the dried foodstuffs place across the aisle in mall will have them for sure. I've seen them in large bins at the front of Jay's (is it Jay's? In the mall at Centre St and 16th)

        I think it's called Tops 100 or something now. But it used to be Jay's. Tops 100 should have it. You can also try Lambda supermarket (a block or two down from Tops 100) and Hang Fung in Chinatown (119 - 3 Ave. SE).
