Where can I buy quail in the east or south bay?
I'm looking for quail for guilotas en salsa, but I don't know where to buy them. Are they expensive? Any advice is greatly appreciated
I've bought them at Cosentino's (frozen). I'd expect you could get them at Draeger's or Andronico's too. The phone book is your friend -- call and ask before going.
Ranch 99 and Mexican carnicerias will often have quail in the freezer case. And sometimes Ranch 99 has them fresh in the poultry case or prepackaged. You might check with the new 99 Ranch in Dublin.

I've seen them at Magnani's on Hopkins in Berkeley. You could probably get them for less elsewhere, though. Be sure to call first since I don't think they always have them.
Enzo's in the Rockridge Market Hall has them in their freezer cabinet...and I think that Ver Brugge [also on College Ave.] may have the frozen ones as well...
