Best coconut milk

I'm making a Seafood Stew with yellow curry and coconut milk. The recipe calls for real coconut milk and there are soooooooo many on the market. Please recommend the best since it is such a main ingredient in the special stew. Thank You!!

In Seattle, the Trader Joe's version is pretty nice.

Thai Kitchen is great quality. I'm partial to Goya in a pinch though! Have never had any complaints :)

Thai Kitchen is good. There's another from the Asian market I use....at first it seems 'cheaper'
And has a fat disk in the can. But the flavor is much better. The Thai Kitchen while good is more homogenous. http://www.foodservicefiresale.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=COCONUTMILK&Click=80233
Ah..that one. Chaokoh.

I used to make my own too, but now I stock Chao Koh.

I make my own!! No funny tastes and much more cost effective. I use dry unsweetened coconut. ;o)
