  1. Most get them from Michael and Marco (Truffle Bros.):
    http://trufflebrothers.com/Truffle_Br...

    Can also try Dirk @ www.lafunghi.com.

    Bring your own scale.

    1. You can also get them at the farmers market in Studio City. Check out the one I got: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Fh-_2UkWs3w...

          Really? Where in the store? Never seen them there. Are they from Italy or these the variety from Oregon? How much? Thanks.

        2. I just saw them at Wally's on Westwood...in the little food store, right be the wine store.

          1. Surfas will most likely have them... call ahead.

            1. Can anyone share tips for a reliable and reputable internet resource for purchasing black or white truffles? Thank you.

                In the last week I have bought two beautiful white truffles from Surfas in Culver City. They seem to arrive on Thursday and sell out in 24 hours. Very fresh. Very delicious and aromatic.

                  How much ? And where are those white suckers sourced from ?

                  1. re: kevin

                    They were from Italy. I paid about $150 for each one. I don't remember the exact weight .

                    Thanks for the info. I used to live in LA and shop at Surfas

                      I know they got a shipment today and sold most within an hour of opening. Worth calling to see if any are still available.
