I'm pretty sure I've seen them at FuBonn before. It's been a while since I've shopped there, though.

Best regards,

Amanda

Yes you can get them at Anzen and Vieng Lao (on Killingsworth near I-5). I just roasted a whole hog a few weeks ago and used banana leaves from both places (they were the same).

Oh and I assume most Asian places carry them, these are just the two I went to. They come frozen (if you didn't already know).

Hello and good evening! I am desperately trying to find banana leaves! I am puertorican and there is a side dish we cook called "pasteles", which some will think it is a Mexican version of tamales, but NOT quite! Our island version of pasteles are wrapped in green banana leaves, and the mixture is made out of mashing green bananas and yuccas, and then stuffed with meat pastries. It is traditionally served at Christmas time in Puerto Rico. I already made some when I went to visit my family in the East coast (MA) and all ingredients can be easily found over there, but very hard in the PNW! Already got annatto seeds being shipped my way, but just need to find the leaves and green bananas! I hear Asian markets might have the leaves which would be so huge if I can find them! Any suggestions for the green bananas as well? Very much appreciated in advance!

Indian markets carry them also. Appna Bazzar or the India Market next to Wunderland both in Beaverton.

You might call Dashen Grocery on NE 25th and Glisan or Tienda de Leon farther out on NE Glisan.

And I'm thinking Kaah Market in the Portland Mercado might be a good source. Perhaps I can check tonight?
