Edmonton: where to buy kaffir lime leaves?

One of my recipe books has kaffir lime leaves in a lot of the recipes.... and I'm doubtful as to my success if I look for them at Safeway!

  1. I see them all the time at the shops in Little India. Try the Spice Center (9280 34Ave)

    1. Try T&T supermarket in the produce or frozen section. I have a stash kept in my freezer at all times. It makes a huge difference in Thai curries!

        Just saw huge bundles of fresh lime leaves at T&T in West Ed on the weekend

      2. I saw kafir limes, but I am not usre about leaves themselves at El Safadi Bros. This was last saturday.

          Lucky 97 or T&T have always had them fresh when I go looking, I pop the left overs in the freezer.

        2. I have bought them at Save-On Foods in Mayfield Common.
