Fresh Edamame in Northeast Los Angeles?

Not yet :( Will keep looking at Japanese markets

Fresh Edamame in Northeast Los Angeles?

I should note that I'm looking for Fresh Edamame - so far I've only seen cooked/ready-to-eat from Trader Joe's, Costco, and every grocery store (so far)

Fresh Edamame in Northeast Los Angeles?

Does anyone know where we can find fresh edamame in Northeast Los Angeles? I haven't yet been to the Japanese market in downtown, although others in the area haven't been successful.

Heck, we'll even take suggestions for other neighborhoods (even go to the West side....) if we have to!

Thanks in advance!

Are there any decent vegetarian tamale options?

Totally hear you on the price issue, but the quality is well worth it and is a great option for eco-eaters. One tamale is enough for me, so spending $5 for a meal is actually pretty darn good! I am not at all a fan of the grocery store buys, and I like to supprt the local economy, so it was a good choice for me. And so I ordered a dozen, which will impress my family at christmas for sure! (She also hooks it up with organic sour cream and near-organic salsa).

Try La Guera Tamales if you're ordering for the holiday or a party, etc. Amazzzzzzing jalapeno and cheese vegetarian tamales! Also Organic. she is located in Echo Park but offers free delivery.

McCall's Meat and Fish on Hillhurst in Los Feliz supplies sustainable/humanely raised meat products
From what I've heard they have some pretty incredible stuff, probably a little on the pricey side though!
