In Search of the Elusive Bone Marrow

Hi There You Food Adventurers!
I am in search of Bone Marrow. Is this a futile journey in the County of Los Angeles? What I have in mind is this: bone marrow that has been roasted in the bone and split in half and some crunchy bread. Thats it. Anyone know of a place?

Thanks So Much....

  1. Josie had something very much like that on one our visits which I had as an appetizer.

    Josies 2424 Pico Blvd. Santa Monica.

    1. Does anyone know or have a butcher they like in West LA who will sell them marrow bones to use for broth?

      1. Have you tried the resident butcher at Whole Foods, Gelson's, Bristol Farms and Wild Oats?

        1. Pretty much any of the larger Latin supermarkets will have beef marrow soup bones, like El Colmao in N. Hollywood, but there's tons.

          1. That reminds me, try Korean markets like H.K. on Pacific Ave in Glendale and Western Ave in Los Angeles. When I was a stringer in NYC, interviewed a few Korean business owners that trafficked in beef bone marrow soup.

            1. Strange, but this is precisely what's on the menu tonight (NYE) at Wilshire.

                Are you sure? I checked the website recently and saw that they are serving their regular menu tonight.

              2. there's the bone marrow flan at cut...not sure if that's quite the same thing though.

                and korean grocery stores sell oxtail...not quite bone marrow but boiling those bones in water for around 12 hours and then eating the bones and little pieces of meat cartilage stuck on those bones is heavenly.


                1. I was in Ralph's Market the other day and they had packages of bones labeled beef marrow bones. Might check with your local Ralph's Market. P.S. If you research Saveur Magazine recipes on the net they had a great recipe for beef marrow in the bone. Further, I'm relatively certain the buthcer will saw the bones in half.
