  1. South China Seas (Granvile Island Market & Victoria Drive) carries Thai chilies; not sure about the powder though.

        I know I can bring some back I was thinking about after that ran out

          I was thinking that too, if there are a couple brands that you think look good. Then you'd have them for easier sourcing at home. I was at Asia Market on Friday and didn't see the powder but I wasn't specifically looking. You could also call Benjarong Thai as they co-own Asia Market and both Pook and Nook are very helpful.

        2. Ive never seen it anywhere but Seattle. Place called World Traders...? Mostly home stuff but I love my green Thai Chili powder I got there!

            Now I really want some! Maybe I'll check when I'm in Portland this month. There's a new World Foods opening in the Pearl. Any quick tips on usage?

              Its really hot and I make soup with red curry paste all the time and find it needs a extra kick, dash of powder.
              or in Pad Thai or thai type stirfrys.
