SE Asian Grocery Store in SF?
Does anyone know of a grocery store that sells fresh ingredients for Indonesian cooking (pandanus leaves, fresh tumeric, baby ginger, etc)? We recently returned from a trip to Indonesia and wanted to re-create some of the dishes we tried. We live in San Francisco - however, we would be willing to drive across the Bridge or venture to the Peninsula if we could get fresh ingredients...
Thanks for the help!
Battambang Market in the Tenderloin is primarily Cambodian & Thai but might do the trick. The store is total chaos, so don't go when you're in a rush. Another possibility is Manila Oriental Market, which I've heard stocks lots of SE Asian ingredients but I haven't checked it out yet.
