Pandan aka Pandanus leaves at Kim Hour they're decent, as in they're the closest thing i've found in montreal to the actual fresh leaf where it's indigenous.
All the other places i've found it's either bad turnover or frozen.

I can also help with the young coconut. I haven't come across much, but Fu Tai in Cote des Neiges mall has, and at a price not far from the dried brown kind everyone is used to here.
Was quite happy to find that! note, their stock isn't always perfect, so do make sure you look closely at the bottom.
