New To Ontario and I need some help finding some items
Hi everyone on Chowhound, I've been a long time reader of your site and reviews, its helped me find some of the best food around Vancouver and Calgary. However, I have just moved to Ontario from Calgary for schooling and am currently having problems finding some items from Thailand/Laos, I understand for the most part that large chain stores like Ocean's,T&T, and Oriental Food Mart carries most of the ingredients I am looking for, but things like small Thai eggplants and Housewares I can't find (Sticky rice steam basket, Sticky Rice container amongst other things)
So my question is if anyone knew any Laotian/Thai Owned grocery stores anywhere in the Niagara to Greater Toronto Area? any input would be greatly appreciated
Welcome to Ontario, AVONGSA!
I purchased my steam basket (and pot) for sticky rice at Tap Phuong on Spadina. You'll find other housewares there, as well.
For Thai egglant, there are 2 large Asian grocers on Spadina, both north of Dundas a block or two, one either side of the street (sorry, I don't know the names). I always find the small eggplant at the one on the east side of the street.
