Buah Petai / Sataw Beans

I posted this on the Atlantic board but have had no responses. So I guess I will have to source these in Ontario.

Does anyone know of a souce for Malaysian petai beans? Sataw is the Thai name. They are usually sold frozen. We had them last weekend at Gourmet Garden on Sheppard in a Sambal Shrimp with Petai. Wonderful taste that some may have a time getting used to. None of the usual local Asian grocers know them and show me frozen soybeans. I phoned several Halifax Thai restaurants and of course they responded saying yes we have Pad Thai and yes we have Satay! If you know of a wholesaler perhaps I could have them ordered by a local grocer who receives goods in a refrigerated truck; otherwise it will have to be on my next visit.
