Taro in Montreal?

Peaches to Poutine Aug 13, 2012 09:52 AM

Any leads on where I can find it? I have a passel of yummy sounding recipes from the last issue of VegNews that center on taro, but it's no-go out here in the Townships.

And if not taro, acceptable substitutes (yucca, perhaps).

    I've bought some at Kim Phat in Brossard in the past

      I was thinking you could contact Marche Hawaii by email - they should have it - although they are off the beaten track, on the outskirts of Montreal. They have a great web-page though.

        I would imagine at any good grocer in Chinatown. If I'm passing by there I'll

        stop in and check. But I'd be surprised if someone doesn't carry it.

          Almost all Asian supermarkets in Montreal sell it. Other options would be Sami Fruits as well African, Caribbean and Latino places.
