Fresh Kaffir Lime Leaves?

I searched this boad and found some helpful info on where I might find fresh kaffir lime leaves in Manhattan, though some of the info was a bit dated.

Has anyone found them recently in Chinatown or WF or Fairway?

Tnx, ~~ Hamster

    the thai place on mosco street (was called bangkok friendship corp, but i dont think thats the name anymore)

    1. Eataly has the best price right now. $2 for 25-30 leaves. Prepackaged by the vegetables.

      I've also found them at Bangkok Center Grocery.

        Wow! That's a great price at Eataly! Too bad those people who automatically dismiss Eataly as being overpriced would miss out on those bargains.

          Now it's $4 a package but still a good deal.

            Can anyone confirm that Eataly is still carrying these? Are they next to the small clamshells of arugula etc? I was just there but didn't remember to specifically look, and didn't notice any otherwise. I haven't bought any there since the fall, when you could still buy them in bulk. They were also selling kaffir limes then too.

      2. what do you use these for?

        1. Thanks for the info. I was interested in hitting Eataly anyway, so will head down there to check it out. Will also probably wander around Chinatown too so will hit Mosco St.

          @pbj : they are a key ingredient in some southeast Asian dishes, particularly Thai cuisine.
