Buying duck and lemongrass in PVD area


I've been looking to buy a whole Long Island duck (preferably fresh, but frozen is ok too) and lemongrass in the Providence area. Does anyone know of any places to purchase either of these? Thanks for the help.

  1. For lemongrass, there are numerous asian groceries that will serve your needs. two that I frequent are Five Star Market on Dexter St south of Cranston St and New Asian Market on Broad St near downtown, next to the McDonalds. I prefer Five Star, but both will have lemongrass.

    I bet both will have duck as well. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure that Antonelli's on Depasquale Square has duck.

    (Just remember to get it a day before you want it--the birds are slaughtered to order and in my experience you do not want to cook it a couple hours after slaughter, as it will be very tough--due to rigor mortis. takes a little while for it to tenderize after that. i don't know the details, but i did make one inedibly tough dish from there.)
