Southeast Asian markets/ingredients?

OakTownHound | Aug 7, 2009 01:28 PM

Just moved to the area, and am wondering where the best sources for Southeast Asian ingredients are. I cook a lot of Thai Food and am always on the lookout for hard-to-find items like:

-Happy Boy or Tra Chang brand fish sauce
-fresh galangal, thai chiles, holy basil, kaffir lime leaves
-Lion & Globe peanut oil
-mae ploy brand curry paste
-palm sugar
-most of the stuff on this page: http://thaifoodandtravel.com/brands.html

I live in Cambridge but am studying at the Tufts campus in Chinatown, so a good market in that area would be quite convenient. However, I'm willing to schlep to find the right ingredients!

Thanks.
