Limburger Cheese in SF

PRFsfo Sep 22, 2011 01:45 PM

Anyone know of a place between San Francisco and San Mateo (my commute area) that sells Limburger cheese? My family in Pennsylvania used to eat it on pumpernickel bread with raw, sliced onion. Sounds horrible but it was good. Is there some reason why it's difficult to find here?

    I don't know, but Marin French Cheese's Schloss is quite similar. I used to buy it at Safeway, though I haven't looked for it in years.

      You can eat it at Schmidt's on pumpernickel with onions, on their cheese plate. The menu might give a hint of where they get it.

      I remember seeing lots of German dairy products in the fridge at Lehr's German Specialties.
