Where is a good place to find reasonably priced and fresh caviar in San Diego? I am making soft boiled eggs with caviar.

    Costco will often carry caviar in the seafood section, especially during the holiday season.

      and Costco has 7 caviar choices online now - and most of the year...shipping is included in the price, but it takes about 5 days to get it delivered. Because it is fresh.

        Almost forgot... Try Kalinka European Deli in Solana Beach. It's a family-run Russian Deli. 858-350-6443.

          whole foods and trader joes often have it. At WF it is in the Deli Cheese counter.

            Thanks to all the responses! I ended up going to Whole Foods in Hillcrest and bought two ounces of Sturgeon Caviar for $32.50 each. It was excellent. I also looked online at Costco.com and it seemed like they had caviar at 30% less than other retailers. If I was more certain of the delivery date, I would have gone with Costco.

              Does Costco sell Iranian caviar?
              Love that stuff!

                Look on www.costco.com
                The selection changes throughout the year; just like items in the store. I think largest selection is now/just before New Year.
