i'm getting into thai cooking - making curry paste etc - and looking for a place to buy lemongrass and spices etc. i think whole foods carries most of it, but somewhere more authentic would be fab.
thanks!

    Your local Ranch 99 should have lemon grass as well as most other thai ingredients you need, such as canned conconut products, and sweet chili sauce.

        There's a huge Korean market and food court on, I believe, Devonshire and Reseda. I'm sure you could find almost anything you need there.

          There are a couple of "authentic" Asian markets on Sherman Way in North Hollywood. Either of these will have everything you need. I would try Bangluck first, New King may be a little too fragrant for some.

          Bangluck Market Corporation
          12980 Sherman Way, North Hollywood, CA 91605
          --small, but well-stocked Thai grocer with fresh produce and a butcher/fish counter along with numerous types of curry pastes and dry goods; parking is tricky.

          New King Seafood Supermarket
          12811 Sherman Way, North Hollywood, CA 91605
          --larger, pan-Asian market. Very low prices, but uneven quality (bought lemongrass at $0.69 a pound, but not terribly fresh); "authentic" odors.
