Finding Malaysian Kaya in Montreal

ponovan Nov 29, 2011 02:29 PM

Anyone know where to find kaya in Montreal? I am referring to the Malaysian/Singaporean coconut & pandan jam, not the artist formerly known as Francis Martin.

    Have you tried Marché Hawaii? They have a pretty good Malaysian/Singaporean section.

      I second Marché Hawaii. My Indonesian friends and I have been having a great time discovering all the products they offer there that are pretty obscure or nostalgic. It's worth the trek.

      I remember finding some at Kim Phat in Brossard a few years back

        Thanks for the advice. I will try out Hawai and Kim Phat Brossard next time I rent a car, and report back.

          If you really want it, both Hawai (cote-vertu metro) and kim phat brossard (panama bus terminus) are accessible by public transit

            Kim Phat on Jarry is easily accessible by public transit as is the one on Côte-des-neiges. You could also try G&D in the basement of Swatow plaza in Chinatown.

              I've looked at Kim Phat on Jarry and at G&D - no luck there.

            I went to Hawaii - it is definitely worth the trek. Lots of stuff you can't find elsewhere, but they don't have kaya.

            The search continues.
