Where to buy Kaffir Limes

Does anyone know where to find fresh (or frozen if must be) kaffir limes or leaves on the east side of town, near Pasadena?

I've got a gourmet group challenge ot cook a vegetable dishing using them. Any great recipes?

      1. Hi ssackett, we try to keep our local boards like L.A focused on where to source ingredients and prepared food in this region. Likewise, the Home Cooking board's focus is where we handle recipes and tips for making food yourself. There's a rich archive of discussion about kaffir lime leaves that you can search, but feel free to start a new discussion here:

          1. I just saw french ones at the big Thai market on Hollywood Blvd., just east of Western.
            It's a great place for ingredients at great prices.
