Culantro (NOT cilantro) in Toronto / Etobicoke / Mississauga?

  • 2

Can anyone point me in the direction of some culantro in the west side of the GTA?

  1. No directions; sorry.

    Be sure to check Asian grocers under different names. I find it here as Vietnamese ngo gai. In West Indian markets it might be "shadow beni" (that's how it sounds, but probably not how it's spelled). Recao in Puerto Rican markets, I think.

    1. Most Asian grocery stores will have it. My mom gets it at the Don Mills Sunny Food Mart. I think there is a Sunny in the west end too
