ISO Penang Curry Paste

Does anyone know where I can find some decent Penang curry paste downtown? The only one I seem to find is from 'Taste of Thai' and I'm not a huge fan of their products.

  1. You can't find Mae Ploy? Seems to be everywhere.
    I would try T&T on Cherry St

    1. Is there a difference between Penang and Panang curry?

        Penang is a city in northern Malaysia.
        'Panang' is the English transliteration of the Thai word พะแนง and refers to the curry.

          Thank you for the clarification. I often order Penang noodles from Restoran Malaysia and they are not curry. I guess it's easy to confuse the two words.
