Rabbit meat in San Francisco

dario.barbone Nov 10, 2007 12:36 PM

Trying to master a perfect Paella Valenciana and have difficulties finding rabbit meat in San Francisco. Does anyone have suggestions? Actually now that I think about it, I also miss a reference butcher in the city. Do you have hidden gems to share? I'll probably try Guerra meats today.

    Have you tried Bryan's? I bought rabbit at the Jones Rabbit Farm in Santa Rosa and they told me they supply Bryan's in San Francisco.

      I've been able to purchase rabbit at both Andronico's (Funston & Irving, Inner Sunset) and the Tower Market on Portola (did they get acquired by Mollie Stone's?) in the past. Hope that helps...

        It's not in the City, but Wayland's Meat Market in Oakland on Fruitvale in the Dimond district frequently has rabbit available. They have had it the past couple weeks(according to their sign out front). Last time I bought from them, it was 5.99 a pound.

          I'll check them all!
          Wow, I couldn't have hoped to have more choices.
          I already checked Andronico's but I'll dig better.
          Thanks to you all.
          Hope to shake hands one day.

            Little City Meats in North Beach usually has it. You can sometimes find a fresh whole rabbit there. 1400 Stockton St. at Vallejo.

                Got it! A nice frying rabbit...
                Not Bryan's, neither Andronico's but Mission Market!
                Good size, fresh, juicy and soft.
                Paella is planned...it's time to use those Salsafran pouches bought in Barcelona almost two years ago.
                Thanks to everyone.
