Where to find real canned San Marzano tomatoes in North County?

Yup. These were the ones that were $6.50. I guess I need to make a trip down to Mona Lisa's.

I was hoping to avoid a trip down there but that is probably my best bet. I need 00 flour anyway.

I don't recall the brand, but they did carry the seal from the Italian government. (just because they say San Marzano on the can doesn't mean they are real San Marzano tomatoes)

I have found some at Ralph's, but they are $6.50 a can. Does anyone know where I can find these more reasonably priced?

Anybody tried La Bastide in Scripps Ranch?

We drove by La Bastide and it was empty. We ended up driving downtown to Cowboy Star and it was well worth the drive.

Looking for pistachio paste in San Diego

Thanks! I went to the La Jolla one today and they didn't have it.. Was it with the nut butters or the baking stuff?

My husband wants steak, but we don't want to dress up or go to far. Any other suggestions?

I may just have to order the stuff. I was hoping not to do this, but at least then I can get the good stuff made with Bronte pistachios. :)

I did try making it last night, but the texture is just not the same. I may have to bring out my mortar and pestle.

Any good new places in North County? Or at least nothing south of Del Mar?
