Hello fellow chowhounders!
I have been on the hunt for Galangal for quite awhile. I work in North York and live in Thornhill... does anyone have a source for Galangal in those areas? Any other area in Toronto is fine but my preference is to find it closer to home or work.
I get it in Chinatown and I've seen it at Scarborough foodymart. The tone tai in North York is part of the same group but I don't recall seeing it there. Maybe make friends with a thai restaurant and buy some from them. (or for better food, a Malaysian one)
As mentioned by several people T&T, China Town and galleria.
A new find at least for me is the Vientiane Trading (in Etobicoke)
51B Jutland Road
Toronto, ON M8Z 2G6
Its a more of a supplier to Thai restaurants but I saw some thing I haven't seen elsewhere.
I would call ahead though.
Agree on T&T - I bought some at the Cherry Street location a couple weekends ago. If you're downtown the greengrocer downstairs in SLM ususally has it.
