Huli Huli Sauce Pasadena area?

Beetlekat Sep 14, 2007 11:08 AM

Just returned from Maui and bought some Huli Huli sauce at the Star Market while we were there. Thought we could find it here but have had no luck. Any ideas on where to get it in the Pasadena/Glendale area?

    I know I've purchased Huli Huli sauce here in the Southland, but I'm trying to remember where exactly. It could have been at HOWS market (Pasadena), or possibly a Gelson's or Pavilions. They might also have it at 99 Ranch. In any event, if you don't find Huli Huli, look for a very similar product called Aloha Barbecue Sauce. It's basically the same thing.

    If all else fails, there's always the Internet.

      I remember seeing it at Bristol Farms in S. Pasadena.
      Marukai Market in Little Tokyo (in Weller Court) definitely has it in the Hawaiian food section.
      The Huli Huli sauce you're referring to is the #1 commercial brand available. The 3 ingredients are soy sauce, sugar and ginger.

      Huli huli sauce is basically a marinade with recipes as varied as your imagination and
      taste with the basic ingredient being soy sauce. Google "huli huli sauce recipes" for a start.

        Thank you monku. I will try Bristol. In the meantime, we did make our own this weekend until I can buy some. Thanks again.

          Good going...you'll find your own recipes can be better than that store bought brand.

      I just saw it at Surfas, I know it is not in your area. You might want to check with How's Markets, they have a really good selection of sauces like that.

        Thanks Burger Boy. Is Surfas the restaurant supply in Culver City or something else? I don't mind traveling to get it if I have to. I will check with How's too.
