Visiting NYC from Boston. Want to grab some particularly hard to find Thai ingredients like Kaffir lime leaves in Manhattan.

Can anyone provide the address of a Thai grocery with extensive, hard to find Thai ingredients?

Thanks.

    There are two Thai markets in Chinatown - you can find them on this list of mine:

    My preference is for the one on Mosco Street, as it is cheaper. I have bought Kaffir lime leaves at both of them, though they don't always have them.

    The Vietnamese market, and Kam Man also carry some Thai ingredients.

            They've been doing some shopping guides for ingredients specific to various cuisines:

                kathryn - have you considered a career as a reference librarian...?

                Kaffir lime leaves are sometimes in the freezer section.

              My favorite store for Thai (as well as Malaysian) is Asia Market Corp on Mulberry street.
