Where can I buy taro root, cassava, other tropical produce in LA?
I just got a cookbook that has a lot of east Indian recipes with exotic produce. I went to Bristol farms and somebody told me that I could find taro root, cassava and other products (smoke seasoning?) like that in Philipinotown. Does anyone know the name of a grocery store that would carry these types of foods? Thanks in advance.
I haven't been there in a while, but Tien Phat Produce in Westminster generally has a frankly amazing selection of tropical produce. I my various visits, however, I have yet to encounter an employee who speaks English, so, if you go here, it's good to know what you're looking for.
