Looking for Raclette (Cheese)

I'm on the westside but willing to travel. A friend is having a fondue party and I'm on the hunt for him. He saw some at the Beverly Hills Cheese Shop and was floored by the price.

      I've tried Trader Joe's Raclette (as mentioned below), but it wasn't very good.

      The best cheese was from Surfas and was recommended to me there (possibly by David). It's called Scharfe Maxx, and it's delicious... and it's also probable that its price will floor you too. I don't remember the exact price, but it wasn't cheap.

    2. Trader Joes very regularly has some. You can also try Laurent Bonjour (he has a truck at the Larchmont farmers market on Sunday) but TJ's is cheaper.

      1. Andrew's Cheese Shop on Montana in Santa Monica. I bought some there, but I'd give a call first for the price.

        1. I've seen it at Whole Foods and Bristol Farms, but I can't swear they always have it.

          1. i've bought Raclette from the cheese shop in the Farmers Market at third & fairfax. Mr. Marcel. give em a call to find out their prices.
