Triangle Loaf of Seeded Whole Grain Bread @ European Food on Clement

At yesterday's chowdown at Hakka Restaurant in the Outer Richmond, "ChowFun_derek" shared a new find from European Food.

The crusty seeded, multi-whole grain bread has a nice sour tang and nutty flavor.

BTW, did anyone notice any shish kabob grilling on friday?

  1. also, New World Market at 5641 Geary Blvd. between 20th - 21st Avenue and Royal Market & Bakery at 5335 Geary Blvd. betweem 17th - 18th Avenue. Which one?

    1. They have it at a little Russian market on La Playa, near Safeway and Fredy's Mkt (great turkey sandwiches!!) They also sell the best 1/2 done pickles I've ever found in SF. They also sell some more "done", which my daughter prefers. That bread is really good toasted.

        Now you tell me. I went there before the chowdown at Hakka and hadn't had the bread yet.

      2. Speaking of European Food, New World, Royal, etc. Have you guys tried the Russian sausags? I don't know if they're house made but they're fresh and tasty. A friend brings them on camping trips and they're very good to excellent and very reasonable in price. I've had 3-4 different types but since I only know where they were purchased but didn't buy them, don't know the whole story.

          You mean fresh sausages, not cured? Because European Foods has dozens of kinds of cured sausages from (or in the style of) all over Eastern Europe, so "Russian sausages" isn't nearly enough information to identify any specific item.

        2. On Monday I stopped by Royal Market to pick up some smetana and found the triangle loaf there. It was in a Backer Back bag with this website on it. The company is based in the Sacramento area and supplies par-baked German style loaves. The loaf was $4.50 here.

            I'm currently at the airport in Germany and just had some triangular bread with sesame seeds on the outside. A web search led me here - so does anyone know where I could get the pans that are used to bake these loaves in the bay area - preferably peninsula?

          2. Wanted to update this thread. When I checked in october, Royal Market & Bakery was no longer offering this bread.

            But good news for those in Sonoma County, the new European Food Store in Santa Rosa bakes this every day, as well as other dark breads.
