Looking for Anari Cheese in SF/Bay Area

Hey All

Looking for Cyprus style Anari cheese (whey from making Halloumi) for some greek cooking. I see its available in London and I cant imagine why it wouldnt be available in SF/Berkeley.

Any thoughts? Is there a Greek Grocery?

  1. Indus Foods in Berkeley has a lot of of that kind of cheese from various countries.

    I know of two Greek stores, whether they have any Cypriot stuff I don't know:

    Hellenic American Imports
    2365 Mission St. (between 19th & 20th)
    (415) 282-2237

    Daly City place:

              Actually in Oakland and the Greek Festival in May would be a good time to ask.
