Buying Truffle Oil in Twin Cities
I am looking for a place to buy truffle oil! I had it at my favorite lounge/restaurant in Boston on popcorn with Parmesan Cheese and was going to attempt to replicate the numminess. Where could I purchase it? It's not at Whole Foods, Festival, or Watkins.
I'm 99% sure that Surdyk's deli has truffle oil. I think it's in the cabinet behind the cash register. And they have great parmesan cheese - ask for the really fancy, extra-aged, super-expensive, imported parmesan (they don't always have it, but it's worth a special trip if they do).
Oh, and while you're there, be sure to get a few bars of Rogue chocolate....

I'm not by any means a connoisseur of truffle oil, but I've bought it at Buon Giorno in Lilydale.
Truffle salt's a good idea, seahag!
Please make sure you aware of what type of truffle oil you are purchasing. Not all oils are the same. Some do not even contain one ounce of true truffles.

Some are made honestly....those are the more expensive one...some use porcini to flavor the oil and some are made in the lab.
I bought some at the Minneapolis Whole Foods a while back -- it was in an odd location, not with the other oils (as I recall, it was near the meat counter).
