Thanks to everyone who helped out with the Taverna Tony question. Now....where can I find taramasolata to purchase? Any greek markets?

  1. Jon's Marketplace certainly has it at all of their locations.

    1. I saw it recently at Surfas.

      1. I second Surfas and Jons (right next to their smoked fish) but also Whole Foods, at least the one on 3rd & Fairfax, weirdly enough it's right next to their cream cheese selection.
        Jons has 2 different brands, one that has more egg roe and the other is more creamy (its the same one you find at Surfas and WF).
        I haven't looked at Papa Cristo's but I assume they should have it.

        also, I had it at a friend of mine a couple of years ago and he had bought it at Costco.

          Papa Cristo does have it and one of my friends thinks it the best he has had in L.A. and often finishes the container before he gets home.

        2. In Sherman Oaks, Italian/Middle Eastern Market on the corner of Riverside and Fulton has Taramasolata, Tarama (plain fish roe if you want to DIY), Spanakopita, Baklava, Phyllo dough, Kataifi, Haloumi Cheese,... They're my go-to place for all things Mediterranean

          1. Was just at Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica and saw it in their fridge - the same brands they carry at Surfas, and two different sizes. Good luck!

              Most Armenian grocery stores in Glendale and Pasadena carry this item.
