Kaffir Lime Leaf

Tried searching site for the leaves but no success. I had bought fresh leaves in Tacoma Park, but the place is gone now. Any Thai markets in northern DC that sell them?

    1. re: JonParker

      Wegmans in Sterling/Ashburn VA. no longer carrys them

    2. There is a Thai market on Thayer at Fenton St in Silver Spring,almost always have little baggies of 10-12 in the freezer.Take cash,minimum pchs for credit cards and they only take one or two.

      301-495-2779 sometimes there is only limited english on site,if you need other things,a picture or old container won't hurt

      1. i finally had to order them on line. i will try to find the name of the place and post it. But there were several on line thai food supply sites.

        1. I have found fresh Kaffir Lime leaves in the herb section at the Whole Foods in the Kentlands several times over the past few months.

          1. If you don't mind frozen leaves -- which I use all the time in my Thai cooking -- can be found year round at Duangrat supermarket.
