I need help from any chowhounders that live in T.O.
I would like to buy a real molcajete. Not a concrete-copy that will leave grit in my teeth forever, but one actually meant for making food! Is there anywhere in Toronto where such a wonderful implement might be found? Does anyone know?

TIA, any advice would be much appreciated.

      You could try some Korean stores. I'm sure I have seen them there, I just can't remember which ones.

        Check Perola in Kensington. They have molcajetes, but I have not inspected them to tell you what they are made of.

          I bought mine in the south (Huntsville, Al.)

          I'm here now, I can look for you if you want.
