Taro leaves, taro leaves, please help I want some taro leaves
I know this has been discussed ad nauseum on different boards, but I still have not been able to find a single place that carries taro leaves in Manhattan. I've even dragged my taro-loving ass to the Asian markets in Queens.
Please help. Does anyone know of a store ANYWHERE in Manhattan proper that I can just walk in and purchase TARO leaves? I'm having terrible laulau cravings.
Thanks! Hmmm, I'll check it out. I've trolled every Asian and some African markets in the city with no luck. None in Chinatown's market either... If one more person tells me to substitute spinach, I'll scream!
Gosh I miss Kuhio Grille in Hilo...home of the one pound lau lau...and they used to specially make me an all chicken on too.
I have never seen them fresh as they need to be prepared correctly to remove the toxins. You can find bags of dried leaves at Asia Market in Manhattan or the Phil-Am Mart in Woodside. If they are not labelled as "taro," look for "gabi" or "laing."
