Best San Antonio Asian Grocer
Headed to SA to buy Kaffir lime leaves, fresh lemongrass stalks, rice flour, a hunk of galangal, some Thai chiles, etc. Which of the six or so in town is best bet for selection, freshness, etc.
Hi Dick..+3 on Tim's market. The help isn't the friendliest, but
if you know what you're after, it is the place to be. I was in
Central Mkt. yesterday and noticed that they also have a
decent selection of galangal, & gingers, but can't say if they
had lemon grass. I grow Kafir Lime, so I didn't notice that, either. For some canned and pkged. products, right here in
Kerrville, we have a good market...."Alterations-n-Asian- Market" No, I'm not kidding. 2590 Junction Hwy., in that little strip mall behind the Rio River Café. Deng is a sweetie
and will help. She also has cellophane noodles, rice wrappers for rolls and a number of other items... jarred pickled ginger, chilis, etc. Give the shop a look the next time you're out that Hwy.
Tim's is fairly good but small compared to the larger store called

It has a cooker in the center for broth or oil, a place to put a fire source, then several sections for items to be cooked. When I lived near Seattle, there was a terrific Asian market with all kinds of "stuff" I couldn't identify and I'm kicking myself for not picking up some things there. I'm still in the
Amazinc: Wonder if you are familiar with Diane Bauer and her Thursday Food Depot: about 100 folks inclu. YT pick up raw milk, pastured eggs, various home grown veggies, jams, etc. every Thursday.
