Latin Grocery in New Orleans?

Does anyone know of Latin/Mexican markets in or around New Orleans where I can get banana leaves, dried chilies, Mexican cheese (anejo, fresco), epasote, etc...?

Times Picayune's Brett Anderson responds to Alan Richman

He does think Emeril is a Cajun, although he is from New England, with Portuguese roots.

Something else from Richman:
"Supposedly Creoles can be found in and around New Orleans. I have never met one and suspect they are a fairie folk, like leprechauns, rather than an indigenous race." This after he spoke with Leah Chase.

The criticisms of the food are no insult, but the fact that he calls himself a journalist after writing such an ignorant piece is amazing. I can't understand how some of this stuff survived the editorial process.

Some good reading here:

I tried to post this earlier but it was moved to the Media forum. I wanted to get some reaction from New Orleans folks on Alan Richman's GQ article (no link) on new orleans, a related podcast.
