  1. Do you want to make or buy. If you want to buy Gordon's on Pico has good fish already made. Also if you want to buy fresh fish to make, they have it there too.

    1. Gelson's markets carry it closer to Passover in their fresh deli. It's a little on the sweet side but my kids love it. They also carry a very good full Passover menu. They will start taking orders this year on April 4th.

        I use Ungars brand which I get at Albertsons. It is a frozen load. They have sweetened and unsweetened. We get the unsweetened and add carrots, onions and a touch of sugar. I sure do miss the real homemade mom used to make though.

          I have a friend who does that and I've heard it's wonderful.

      2. Gordon's is now closed! Does anyone have a suggestion as to where else we can find fresh home made gefilte fish NOT the jarred stuff!

          Nate 'N Al's in Beverly Hills. The best! They also offer homemade white & red horse radish. Recommend calling to order in advance.

        2. It's never too late to learn how to make it :). The recipe I have, and use, has been passed down through many generations. My children will pass it on.
          If not, friends purchase it at Nate 'n Al's and it's delicious.

          1. Costco believe it or not.

            They sell the loaf. Boil it in a little water with carrots and onions and it's great. Or just slice and eat... also great.

              What city have you seen it in? What brand are they selling?

              1. re: SIMIHOUND

                Culver City Costco. I don't know the brand offhand.

                Same brand I believe puts out rolled cabbage.

            2. A few things. Prefer kosher. Would possibly make it if the fish market could do the grind. Has anyone heard of Fish in the Village in North Hollywood??

                Yes. Fish-in-the-Village is a lovely kosher fish market/cafe. Very high quality fish for reasonable prices. I am sure they would do anything they can to help you out. Very good people.

              2. Whille I shop at Gelson's all of the time, I am not a fan of their Jewish Holiday foods including the gefilte fish and matzoh balls with chicken soup. My suggestion is Katella Deli. They make pretty good everything.
