Dried Chipotles in Durham

Hi all,
I'm looking for a store or market in Durham that sells dried chipotle chilis. Whole Foods used to carry them, but doesn't anymore. I had high hopes for the Food Lion on Hillsborough, since they tend to carry a good chili selection, but no luck there, either. Any suggestions?

Spanish grocery store in Chicago

Hi all,
I'll be visiting Chicago in a couple of weeks, and would really like to find a Spanish (Spanish-spanish, not Latino-spanish) grocery store that sells torrefacto/sugar-roasted coffee, which I can't get at home. I'll be in the Lakeview area, but will trek just about anywhere to find it! Thanks!

Italian in Chapel??

If you don't mind a drive to Durham, go to Pulcinella's! It's on 751 in the Woodcroft shopping center, just north of 54.
It's by far the best Italian I've had here, and reminds me a bit of neighborhood Italian restaurants in Brooklyn. It's totally unpretentious, cheap (most entrees are under $10), and always good. No, it's not super-fancy, and no, it doesn't have a sommelier, but if you're looking for family-style Italian, this is the place.

Asian markets in Triangle area?

Does anyone know of a place (nursery or asian grocery store) where I could buy a curry leaf plant? I've called around to a few places, but haven't had any luck...
