Looking to buy my first Bamboo Steamers - Need a store location along the subway lines

I will only be hosting one person at a time - Size recomendations greatly appreciated too

Thank you

    I got mine at Loblaws. I'm sure you can get one (and maybe cheaper) in Chinatown or Chinatown East or at T&T.

      Thanks for the quick reply - I'll check Loblaws

      The small ones hold 4 pieces - Do they stack up 3 times

        Unless you've got resto grade steam sources, larger is better than smaller stacked.

        Good call - Looks like a good place to pick up kithen goods

        maybe grab some good cheap dishes there too - Thanks for the tip

          Tap Phong is great for all housewares, much cheaper than resto supply stores or the big box retailers. Nice folks, too!
