Anyone know of a store in Hollywood that stocks this salt? My local Pavillions used to but they don't anymore! I need this stuff, essential!

      Which one? The 3rd and Fairfax one never stocks it!

      for some reason a lot of ethnic markets stock it. We get ours at Super A.

        Smart & Final is where I get mine. Yes, I recognize the urgency you feel - don't think I could cook worth a damn without it! If you didn't know, the locator page says there's one at 2720 Beverly, assuming that's your part of town.

          Look really carefully; sometimes they hide it on the bottom shelf or in the ethnic aisles.

            It usually is on the bottom shelf, or next-to-bottom, and most often in the same area as the spices etcetera.

            What's wrong with Morton's kosher salt? They have that at every major grocery chain.

              Answered my own question by finding this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/551479

              I didn't know there was a difference. Interesting. Now I'll have to seek out some Diamond Crystal to compare.

                You can find it at both Smart & Final stores in West and North Hollywood locations. A 3lb container is 2.99
