Oblaten wafers for baking lebkuchen

Could someone advise where I can find these wafers in Vancouver area? I would like to make some traditional lebkuchen for my father for Christmas. Thanks in advance.

  1. I know I have seen them, but of course can not remember where. I'd suggest calling the following to check before heading over:

    - European Specialty's Food Imports on Prior Street
    - European Delicatessen on Davie Street
    - Alenka European Foods on Kingsway
    - Ploger German Deli on West 1st

    If those places don't have them, I bet they will know where does.

    Alenka European Foods
    701 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC V5T, CA

    European Delicatessen
    1220 Davie St, Vancouver, BC V6E1N3, CA

      Also maybe try the European deli on Cambie next to Shanghai Village -- Piasta??

    2. Also check out the International Sausage House on Gilmore in Burnaby. They carry a lot of european imports, sweets and packaged goods.

      1. I found them at European Specialty Imports. Thanks all. I will look at the International Sausage House too for future reference.

          Glad that worked out for you. That store has an interesting selection, although sometimes you have to blow some dust off the packaging!
