Middle Eastern ingredients? Indian ingredients? Thai ingredients?
I am looking for a place to buy ingredients for Middle Eastern, Indian, and Thai dishes - and the best place to buy super fresh ginger (as in heavy, juicy, not dried out like most markets - even good ones - have). In Mobile. Any thoughts? I don't know if there are any specialized markets there, but surely there must be by now.
Hamiltonmh, I thought you would have gotten an answer by now. I used to spend a good amount of time in Mobile but I don't think I've ever gone to one of the ethnic markets (just mentioning Thai food in general, I like Bangkok on Airport Blvd). If you ask the restaurant proprietors, they will often give you a good idea of who they get things from too. Type into Google: mobile alabama ethnic market.
One that I didn't see in the Google list but have heard of is Food Pak Int'l on Old Shell Road.
I have a couple of friends from Mobile so if you need more help let me know and I'll ask them. Happy new year!
