Latin Grocery in New Orleans?

Does anyone know of Latin/Mexican markets in or around New Orleans where I can get banana leaves, dried chilies, Mexican cheese (anejo, fresco), epasote, etc...?

  1. drive down Williams Blvd for a myriad of places.
    also the International Market across from Paretti Mazda/Jag has much of what you are looking for.

        I saw a latin grocery in Fat City while driving around's between Severn & Division on 18th, I believe. Either at the corner of 18th and Arnoult, or 18th and Edenborn, I can't remember which one.

    2. I've been gone for a couple of years but round the corner from me was El Palaceno (Marigny and Roayl) which might have reopened after Katrina, I don't know

        El Palaceno did not reopen. It was good. I miss their Cuban sandwiches.


      2. Not sure if I would call it a "Grocery" but there is a small latin store that opened recently on Canal, in between Soloman and David (I think) near Carrollton...on the lake side of Carrollton that is. I haven't been in it, but drive by it every day going to and from work.

        1. I think there is one on Freret, between Napoleon and Jefferson. That area seems to be picking up, development-wise, lately.
