Pacific Grove groceries?

JoyM | Jun 3, 2009 06:18 PM

My large extended family (including two small children) will be spending a week in Pacific Grove in a rented house. We have enough restaurant recommendations (Passionfish, Red House Cafe, Sea Harvest, Nepenthe, Big Sur Bakery, Lopez Restaurante, Sand Bar and Grill) to take care of most of our dining out, but we'll be cooking a lot of our meals and I'm wondering if there's anywhere interesting to buy groceries. (Although if I've missed a fabulous place, please tell me.)

I already know where the Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, etc. are in PG and Monterey. I'm looking for stores that are a little more interesting -- is there anyplace to buy Asian groceries? Is there a good fish market? Bakery?

Also, what about takeout? I seem to remember a good BBQ (or was it rotisserrie) chicken place across from TJs, but I don't remember the name. Also, what about Asian food. I remember a decent Thai place also near the TJs, but is there any decent Chinese or Japanese?
