Looking for Kaffir Lime Leaves

Uwajimaya says they are out until further notice and Ranch 99 says they will not be getting them anymore. Anyone seen any lately in Seattle area?

  1. Call Central Market in Shoreline and ask if they have them. I've bought them there in the past..

      Thanks, Tom--I didn't mention that I had seen lime leaves at CM, but they're not Kaffir type. Theirs will be my fall-back if I can't find the real deal.

    2. I got some about a month ago for a tum yum soup recipe at the Chinese grocery off of Northup Way in Bellevue. Can't remember the name of the store, but it's next to Seattle Lighting.

      1. HT market has them I believe as well as a range of Southeast Asian herbs and supplies.
        They are located in the old Larry's mkt on Aurora north.

          Thanks--I forgot to check HT! I'm bike-only and in Lake City, so that works over Bellevue.

        2. It's been a while, and I have no information about current availability, but I've got kaffir-lime leaves at the Souk, in the Pike Place Market.

          1. I would think that southeast Asian supermarkets like Viet Wah would carry them. There are three branches in the Puget Sound area.
