I just got back from my first trip to Mexico and am completely smitten. Many wonderful street food experiences. Because I was doing a lot of hiking and backpacking, it wasn't convenient for me to pick up one of the basalt mortar and pestle sets before leaving, but I'd like to get one here in NYC.
Does anyone have a lead on a Latin American market that sells kitchen tools? I know eBay, sur-la-table etc, but would love to put my hands on one before I buy it.
