Ingredients for Asian food

Does anyone know where I can find fresh herbs like cilantro and basil for cooking Vietnamese and Thai food? Have found an Asian grocery store in Marbella but have not yet seen these fresh herbs around. Thanks!

Thai foods
by: Charlie

We have found fish sauce, lemon grass,, birds eye chillies, green and red Thai paste, sesame oil, chilli oil,lime leaves, coconut milk. All in and around Dianna Park and surrounding local supermarkets. Get coriander that is cilantro, limes ar abundant and brown sugar. You won't need much more than this with the addition of locally grown vegetables.

Good luck.

We've found fresh coriander and some dried spices in our local Supersol, but no fish sauce or more Indian spices. Where is the grocery store you found?
Moved here on Sunday and finding your blog really helpful thanks!

Asplenden in La Campana had these plants last spring. Also a nice selection of flowering plants.

I find its better to go to the garden centre and buy your own plants! But Mercadona sell cilantro and parsley, but never seen basil in there

You can buy in packs in Al Campo (La Cañada) or in pots in most garden centres or Marbella market.

You can find cilantro and basil at Hipercor in El Corte Ingles shopping center.

You can also find these ingredients, when they are in season at the San Pedro street market on Thursdays.
