Salsa Lizano in NY?

  • 8

Does anyone know where I can find Salsa Lizano (Costa Rican sauce) in NYC, preferably in Manhattan?

  1. Did you ever find Salsa Lizano in NYC? I'm on the hunt now, too. I heard they might have it at this amish place on 9th and 49th, but I've yet to check it out...not sure why it would be there either.

      Hi stewarta,

      If you're willing to hop on the L train and head out to Ridgewood, Queens, you can find Salsa Lizano at the big supermarket, Food Bazaar, located just SOUTH of the Myrtle/Wyckoff station on Wyckoff Avenue. There's also a smaller Food Bazaar nearby on Gates Avenue but that's NOT the one I found it at.

      I just got it there on Saturday, (11-6-10). Don't know of any place closer to Manhattan but, hey, how often do you get to go to Ridgewood?

      Hope this helps you out!

        Could you please let me know how much you pay for the salsa lizano and the size of the bottle you got? Thank you.

          Hi cacn1987,

          What unusual questions you ask! But, of course, I'd be delighted to divulge this info.

          The half finished bottle in my fridge is marked 700ml. Unfortunately, the price tag is no longer on it but I don't recall it being terribly expensive considering the size of the bottle.

          I think it may have been between 2 and 3 dollars - maybe a little more.

          Hope this helps you out!

          Happy Lizano-ing!

            Hi cacn1987,

            On Sunday, 1/9/11, I was shopping at Food Bazaar in Ridgewood on Wyckoff Avenue and I happened to see Salsa Lizano there again. The price was $4.99 for a 700ml bottle (more expensive than I had remembered).

            Oops.

              Wow! Thanks for all the info. I just got an e-mail notification that someone had responded. I'll check that place out! Who doesn't love a little time on the L train?

              Thank you!!
