Searching high and low in for squid ink in San Jose.

Anyone have a recommendation for a place it can be purchased in the Santa Clara Valley?

  1. In the past, squid ink has been found at San Francisco's Nijiya. Have you tried the San Jose location?

    We've had a recent report on L & F Market for Portuguese seafood products near Alum Rock. Might be worth a call.

    Please let us know how it goes!

    1. Thought of two other possibilities to check out:

      Rock of Gibraltar in Menlo Park

      La Catalana in San Jose used to sell some products but don't know about squid ink.

      1. I found mine at Draeger's. Regarding Nijiya, there's also a Mountain View location.
