Looking for Thai Red Curry Paste and Holy Basil - South Bay
A co-worker is looking for Thai red curry paste and holy basil. Any suggestions on where to find those in the South Bay?
Holy basil is not the same as Thai basil, as holy basis does not have the anise-y aroma. "Holy basil is also slightly hairy, whereas Thai basil is hairless." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocimum_t...

I like the Mae Ploy brand of curry pastes myself.
Are there red curries without shrimp paste.? I did find a yellow one for my daughter, the vegan.
From the Mae Ploy people.
"We offer a few different curry pastes (red, panang, green, matsaman, sour) and yellow is the only one that is truly vegetarian, as it doesn't have shrimp paste."
