Where to find culantro in San Diego?
Has anyone seen culantro in SD. I didn't see it at 99RANCH unless i missed translation.
No, it's not cilantro misspelled, but closely related. Culantro AKA Mexican coriander, Recao, Ngò gai (Vietnam), Sawtooth, etc.
Used in Puerto Rican and Vietnamese recipes.
Thanks in advance for leads.
Ngo gai is at 99Ranch.
In the 3rd aisle perpendicular to the back aisle of vegetables, (between the aisle of vegetables and the bend over freezer section) wrapped in a styrofoam and plastic and pre weighed/measured/sold by the pound.
There is wrapped/premeasured basil next to it. Ask for the basil then you will see it. It is also that way at Vien Dong, Lucky, and pretty much all Asian Markets...not loose like cilantro or parsely or mint.
