Salt cod in grocery SFV?

SoCalMuncher Jun 6, 2013 11:08 AM

I was looking for salted cod (bacalao) the other day, and after checking the regular chain stores and 99 Ranch, I managed to find it at the Korean small chain grocery on Nordoff (name escapes me atm).
But it was shrink-wrapped, and of rather poor quality, and had more moisture in it than I prefer.

Anyone know of a place in the SFV that sells it open, at the meat/fish counter?

    Maybe Monte Carlo Italian deli? http://www.montecarlodeli.com/italian-deli.html Whole Foods carries the sort that comes in a wooden box and is actually pretty good, though pricy. The best I've found that is simply out in the open has been at Portugal Imports in Artesia http://www.portugalimports.net/ but that's quite a hike from the SFV.

      Most Whole Foods carry salted cod. I've purchased the pre-boxed salted cod and the loose salted cod from the seafood counter at several of of their stores.

        I think Jon's has it. Natas also has it but not sure of price.

          Super King in Northridge may carry it.

            I too have seen it at WF. Also, try Mario's Deli in Glendale. Call first.
