Kalamansi limes/bottled juice in London?

shiraschnitzer Aug 4, 2011 05:06 AM

Just back from a trip to SE Asia and missing the amazing limes used in drinks and dishes there. Has anyone found kalamansi limes, their bottled juice or another particularly aromatic Asian lime at a grocery store in London?

Many thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion, pj26. I happened to stumble across some honey-sweetened syrup at a small Filipino grocery near Victoria. Apparently, the limes sometimes get imported, but only frozen. With some doctoring with fresh lime, it's almost as good as the original. Will report back if I find another similar product.

      Sounds interesting. Are they like a lime cordial?
