Looking for Lizano Salsa

vinomom Jul 8, 2009 11:55 AM

Does anyone know where I can find Lizano Salsa locally (preferrably in the North Bay)? Just back from Costa Rica ~ and forgot to buy it while we were there. I know I can order from the internet, but would prefer to walk into a store and buy it if I can. TIA

    I found Lizano Salsa at Evergreen Market, 2539 Mission St, SF. $5.59 for 700 ml on the bottom shelf. Pic attached.

    What do you use it with?

      It's a table condiment and it's used as ubiquitously in Costa Rica as ketchup is here. It tastes kind of like a steak sauce, and goes great on rice and beans, eggs, etc.

      Man, this stuff is coming out of the woodwork, and at really good prices.

      Spotted at Specialty foods in Old Oakland for less than $7.

        I would love to get my hands on some also. Anywhere in the South Bay?

          Suprised there hasn't been a request for a while. I look for Lizano Sauce every time I go into a Latino market, and haven't seen it in over 5 years.

          Yesterday, I saw it twice: Mi Tierra Linda in Menlo Park and the 5th Ave. Chavez Supermarket in Redwood City (less than $7 for a big bottle).

            You might give Tienda Guatemalteca in San Rafael a try.

            It is mainly Guatemalan but they carry other Central American items.

                I've found Lizano at Casa Lucas Market in the Mission. 2934 24th St xAlabama St. But the last time I was there, they were out. So delicious on eggs!!!
