Thai ingredients in the GTA

2 posts in this topic

Although we are blessed with an abundance of Asian stores in and around the GTA, Thai ingredients seem to be elusive. Does anyone know of a source of such things as Thai soy sauces and curry pastes (Massaman seems to have completely disappeared even from places where we have seen it in the past). Thanks.

No actual prepared curry pastes, but I was at St. Lawrence market this weekend looking for Thai ingredients and managed to find some of the harder to find items like shrimp paste, pickled radish (freaky looking things) and lime leaves. I also found Thai chillis, lemon grass, Thai basil, and palm sugar. There was a large selection of soy sauces, but I'm not sure what constitutes a Thai soy sauce. The only thing on my list that I wasn't able to find was galangal.
