Thai food is a particular favorite. Family favorite is Thai Garden on Mission Blvd in Hayward. Been going there for years. Anyone ever been to Peppers Thai also further down Mission at the other end of Hayward? Would like to know about your thoughts.
So here's the real important question.......... got a great Thai cookbook, and am looking for some of the ingredients, but not having much success. Looking for tamarind paste, masaman curry paste, red curry paste (preferably Maesri brand), and green curry paste, and kaffir lime leaves. Spent last Sunday looking thru many Asian markets in Chinatown Oakland without much success. Where does an aspiring (and perspiring) Thai cook find typical Thai ingredients between Oakland and Hayward line/Fremont???? Thanks.
