I know it's kinda late now, but I was wondering if fresh rakkyo would be available in TO. Not pickled, but fresh.
Tried J-town, Little Tokyo, PAT, Galleria, Sanko, T&T, and various Chinese grocery stores in Chinatown (Spadina x Dundas area)
Anyone know where I can get them? Are shallots and rakkyo the same things?
Also, info on fresh shin-shoga (baby ginger), again, not pickled, would be nice too.
