Where to buy caviar in San Diego?

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

    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.

      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.

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

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

            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.
