Where are Southern African ingredients available in EasT Bay?
I am giving a party to show my photos of our recent Botswanan and SA trip. I have some ideas for recipes thanks to Chowhounders on the Home Cooking board. Now I need to find some of the ingredients. I would like to find Peri Peri sauce, Castle beer, and SA wines. I live in Berkeley and would like to shop close to home if possible.
Cost Plus World Market carries Nando's Peri Peri sauce, at least at the SF location. I don't know how it compares to the local stuff in Botswana, but it's recruited a lot of fans to the Nando's Chicken chain.
Most of the African stores in the East Bay, including the one linked., don't carry liquor that I can recall. For beer it might be better to try a store like Ledger's Liquors in Berkeley. Maybe a separate post inquiring about which wine shops might carry South African wines and any specific winieries that might interest the OP.
Oriental Lucky Mart has stuff from a variety of African countries.
Spanish Table has several brands of Portugese piri piri sauce.
K&L in San Francisco has a large selection of South African wines.
