Aged Balsamic Vinegar Pasadena
I'm making ribeye with aged balsmic cherry tomatoes. I need a good quality aged balsamic vinegar. I usually get it at Brentwood Farmer market but I can't wait. I'm in the Pasadena and San Gabriel area
They sell it at better supermarkets (Whole Foods & HOWS), but you've got several other options.
They have good aged balsamic at the new Porta Via foods, located at the corner of Fair Oaks & California. I've been meaning to post about this new place, which has a great selection of Italian products, as well as beautiful and yummy prepared foods and sandwiches. It's my new favorite place.
There's also Claro's Italian market & deli. There's one in Arcadia on Huntington Drive, just east of Santa Anita. I believe there's one in San Gabriel somewhere, too.
It may not work for you timing-wise, but at the Old L.A. Farmer's Market in Highland Park (Tues from 3 - 8, near the Goldline station at Ave. 57 and Marmion Way, a block east of Figueroa), there's a vendor that has wonderful aged balsamics (several varieties), gorgeous olive oils, avocado oils and cheeses. It's a tiny farmer's market, but this guy is a regular and has great stuff.
