Looking for Squid Ink in Philly

I am looking to purchase some squid ink for some fresh homemade pasta. Any places in center city, Reading Terminal, or the italian market carry it?

Thanks!

    DiBruno's CC doesn't regularly carry it.

      I'm pretty sure I've seen it at Claudio's in the Italian market .

        A caution. Have you ever had this before? I have had it only once in my life, at a wonderful upscale place in N. Y. C.: JO Jo's. Developed a serious allergy, even though I had never been exposed to it before--a kind of creeping facial paralysis. Was delicious, but never again...

          Way allergies work, you must have been exposed, thus an allergic response. Sorry about that, Jojo's was a great place.

            Yes, Jo Jo's was a great place. I used the word 'allergy', because I wouldn't know what other word to use, but despite the way allergies do usually work, I had not been exposed. So, I sort of assume it was some sort of powerful neurological toxin for some people. Tasty though!

        I am going to guess and say to try DiBruno's in CC, or Ippolito's in South Philly.
