I would check out groceries in San Francisco's Chinatown!

Good idea. You might also try Real Foods.
Yea, I am going to try going there soon. It's just a drive so i figured i would ask if anyone knows of a place. thank you though. :)
I don't know what 'ginger flower' is. Is it powdered dry ginger (might be ginger flour?) which would be the commonly available spice; is it some form of flowers from the ginger plant? or some kind of baking flour with some form of ginger added? Sorry, I'd like to know how it is used.
Ginger flower, is the flower of a ginger plant. It's an ingredient in Asam Laksa (a Malaysian dish). I believe it is also used in other dishes as well. I have never used it before. But, wanted to try it out.
Hey Susan, Just back from the grocery store where I bought MYOGA-- which I thought was ginger flower, but Wikipedia says no, its Myoga Ginger. So I think Archita is looking for this maybe
I know how to use myoga but not flowertorch ginger.
I took the picture and was going to upload but
BGT. thanks for the photo! That looks like a grocer's tray that they're on. Archita, did you find them? They look remarkable!
Yes, Susan, I bought these at the grocers. Mine in the garden don't start coming up until July and they keep coming up for about 6 weeks. Myoga Ginger is not really a flower but the bud next to the ground that will become the flower stalk.
Archita, did you find find your flower-torch ginger?
Sorry, that description sounds quite terrible. It's really a great fresh ginger taste usually eaten raw to accent flavors like in chicken salad, etc.
