    Cookbook Company is where i pick mine up. They have them in the freezer.
    I believe i've seen them once at T&T, but it's certainly not something they regularly stock.

      Yep, Cookbook Company and T&T.

      Ironically, it was my searching for Kafir lime leaves in Calgary that led me to Chowhound a few years ago.

        T&T - you have to search a bit as they sometimes move them.

        They sell good curry leaves too!

        You can also find them in the chinese grocer downtown next to banh mi thi thi accross the street from the harry hays building. they're usually packaged fresh in a small cello-wrapped styro tray. cheap too.

            Thanks a lot guys, think I'll try downtown. I must have missed them last time I was at Cookbook Co. I'm glad to have found this board..

              Yen, i think the dim sum place is different and the next door south to the grocer. They specialize in frozen dim sum stuff. The grocer (which i think is called cam phung, or something thereabouts) has a small veg/fruit section, dry goods, asian sauces/noodles/condiments, and a pork/chicken meat counter at the back.

                Ah, i must be confused then - the place we're talking about is Cam Phung i believe. I thought that's where Taiphun got his dumplings from.

                  A little late, perhaps.. but the dumpling place is Chuen May. :)

            T&T has them all the time. They usually stock them on Thursday and if you can't find the fresh they always have frozen.

              Spiceland on Fairmont Drive SE (about 5 minutes from Chinook Mall) also stocks them, frozen and dried... even found them fresh this summer!
