Where can I buy Lan Chi Chili Paste with garlic?
I love many hot sauces, but this one of my staples (along with Sriracha, Thai sweet chili sauce and regular chili sauce).
I used to buy this from the P Street Whole Foods (the only one in DC/Silver Spring that carried it), but with the recent renovations it's no longer available... and I haven't had much luck yet at the local Asian markets that I usually go to (7 Corners Eden Center). I'd love to buy it local rather than order it online. Any suggestions?
Here's a link to the product:
Falls Church, VA, USA, Falls Church, VA
in response to dpan, my point was that i got my jar of lan chi at one of those two non-chinese places. i actually haven't been to great wall in merrifield, which is probably the closest "chinese" store to me. (i should stay out of shops for a while, because i go condiment crazy).
ok, i've bought that. i'll tell you which places i shop, but i don't recall where in partioular i bought mine.
first place i usually go is the grocery store in eden center.
second, the grand mart at 7 corners has lots of pastes like this, and the korean market there at gallows and lee hwy (H mart?).
bangok 54 market seems well-stocked, though i know i didn't buy mine there.
here's a thread on ethnic markets in the d.c. area, fyi:. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/671943
