where to get panko bread crumbs?

Any recommendations on the east side - Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silverlake? Or do I have to go to a Japanese specialty store in Little Toyko or Sawtelle?

  1. On the East Side, I don't know, but I found some recently at Whole Foods, and I find it at certain Ralph's stores.

    1. re: bad nono

      I've seen panko at most grocery stores in the same category as Whole Foods as well - Bristol Farms, Gelson's et al. Trader Joe's used to carry the product - don't know if they still do. And yes, I've seen it at a fair amount of grocery chains as well.

    2. Look in the ethnic aisles at your food store - it'll be near the kikomans and raman noodles. I've rarely found it by regular breadcrumbs.

      1. Pavillions on Olympic and Beverly has the best ones, from Japan, not american made ones.

          1. My local Ralphs in the San Fernando Valley has it in the oriental food aisle.
