Asian Herbs in Vancouver

mbe | Dec 20, 200905:31 PM

Does anyone know of a good source for a wide variety of asian/Viet herbs close to downtown Vancouver?
I'm planning to make some laap/larb for Xmas eve dinner and T&T just doesn't cut it :). I'm looking for coriander and mint but also rice pady herb and saw tooth/laksa herb, and rau ram (that heart shaped leaf herb), fish mint/Diep Ca, etc... as well as fresh galangal.
I remember stumbling upon a rather dingy "supermarket" on Kingsway around 17th that surprisingly had an amazing selection of fresh herbs but if anyone has other sources I'd be most grateful.
