LA Trader Joes locations - out of anchovies, anywhere else?
i used to love the anchovies that TJ's would carry. over the past few months all locations I have been to (WeHo, Los Feliz/Silverlake, Miracle Mile, Culver City, Toluca Lake, Westchester) have been plum OUT. inquiries to the folks at the front are met with TBD in regards to when these come back. they were relatively cheap and had little or any bones - all of which made for great ceasar salads and were good with kids (no bones). any other grocery stores you would recommend in LA that would carry similar anchovies. i went to mayfair on franklin ave out of desperation and was robbed for what proved to be sub-par anchovies. your help is appreciated.
Check out Italian deli-markets for both olive oil-packed anchovy fillets in jars or tins of whole salt-packed anchovies that are far superior to the TJ product! I got some the other day at a place not too far from work in Canoga Park but that might be too far for you.
Since you mention Toluca Lake then you could try:
Monte Carlo Deli
3103 W Magnolia Blvd
Burbank, CA 91505
Ya know, I have notice in the last few months the Santa Monica (pico) location has only had them inconsistently......so I started buying quite a few when they did have them in stock. Unfortunately, I used the last ones yesterday. You could call & see if they have them in stock now?
