Kaffir lime leaves, galangal on the Westside?

Rummy | Nov 30, 2006 02:00 AM

I need your help! The whole family has colds and we're craving a spicy bowl of tom yum gai to clear our heads and warm our souls. This afternoon I travelled to five stores in the marina area (the usual suspects Ralph's, Gelson's, Von's plus Marina Farms and Bristol Farms), but had no luck finding kaffir lime leaves or galangal. I was surprised by this since the smallish town I grew up in always stocked both. I would greatly appreciate any advice on where I might find what I'm searching for.

Thank you!
