URGENT - need authentic thai curry paste, fish sauce and lime leaves in South Etobicoke
I am preparing a thai dinner on Wed night and need to purchase authentic thai curry paste, fish sauce and lime leaves in South Etobicoke. Any suggestions?
I, too, prefer the Mae Sri brand to the popular Mae Ploy. It is also the favourite of Young Thailand owner Wandee Young.
To the original poster: fish sauce, lime leaves, and Thai curry paste can be found at pretty much any Asian grocer in the GTA. No need to go to a specialty store.
There is also an asian grocery store at the corner of browns line and evans. I think it might be called TOPS, but am not positive. But it is located in the strip mall on the south east corner.
I was able to get all my ingredients there to make a fresh thai curry paste and couple other thai dishes. Only thing was that some things have different names from the thai name. Like the thai lime leaves are called something else ( sorry don't remember) but look the same.
Do you have access to a vehicle?
If so there is an asian market at Dundas and Tomken in Mississauga. Close to Etobicoke.
"Oriental Food Centre" is in the Mississauga Chinese Centre plaza and should have the ingredients you're looking for. Look for the big red gateway.
