need: almond powder, banana leaves, black cocoa powder

Almond powder online is always sold out, black cocoa powder is so expensive with the shipping (over 15/lb or sold out) and I really need banana leaves for a vietnamese dish i'm making.
Any idea where to get there? I live in midtown so theres some spanish places on 10th but mostly delis, does whole foods sell it? western beef?

  1. You can get frozen banana leaves at Western Beef. Almond flour you can get at Whole Foods or Fairway.

    1. PS Coffee Tea N Spices in Park Slope, Brooklyn sells black cocoa powder and their prices are very reasonable.

      1. Almond powder - any Trader Joe's (near the almonds), Indian stores (without skin), Fairway, health store or Whole Foods (Bob''s brand)
        Banana leaves - Western beef, Indian stores

        You can also use parchment paper or foil instead of the banana leaves.
