Best Ethnic Markets in Los Angeles

I love Vallarta for great produce, fresh meat, the hot foods section, and the bakery. Oh, and of course for the great prices.

Best Ethnic Markets in Los Angeles

Golden Farms has great produce and a halal butcher counter along with a deli and a hot food counter. They will cook your kabobs for you, too. This store is almost like a mini-mall with nearly every service one could want in an adjoining shop -- dry cleaners, florist, pharmacy, liquor store, check cashing, beauty supply, etc. all in the same building. The deli has close to a dozen kinds of feta, and closer to two dozen kinds of olives, in addition to all the usual -- and unusual -- meats and cheeses.

Best Breakfast Burritos

I've been coming here since the auto shop teacher at Burroughs HS clued me in. The flavors just fit so right together, and you get your choice of meats or just plain eggs, potatoes & cheese. One's a handful, and good enough to keep the place hopping as long as they're serving. I seldom come for anything but the breakfast burrito, but they do a decent cheeseburger and fries lunch as well. It's one of those places the HS kids w/privileges make a run to, the local utility workers stop there, the police stop there, the neighborhood people think it's our little secret, and (almost) everyone says a pleasant hello while they're waiting.

Where can I buy rennet for making cheese locally?

Thanks for replying. I'm settling for vegetable and found it in the little Food For Life store here in Burbank at the same price listed at HBWC.

I tried two Whole Foods, and, not finding it, asked. One store no one knew what I was talking about, the other offered to order it for me.

Thanks, it's further than I can go, but I'll send someone to check it out. The site lists what I need, so I think this is my best shot.

I used to use Junket Rennet tablets to make cheese. But it's been a long time and I can't seem to find anyone who carries it -- or any brand. I live in Burbank, so SFV, Hollywood, WeHo, Glendale areas are closest. Does anyone know of any markets that carry it?
