A coworker brought back some amazing roasted, salted macadamia nuts from Hawaii (Mauna Loa brand). However, regular grocery stores just don't seem to carry any kind of macadamias at all, except as an ingredient (Pepperidge Farm cookies, etc) -- which is strange as so many recipes call for them, either raw/slivered, roasted, the oil, etc.
The last relevant posts on Chow indicated they might be available at Akhavan, Sunsource (very expensively) or other places in the north-eastern end of the city. Any luck finding them affordable and/or closer to downtown? Does the guy at Atwater Market carry them? Thanks in advance.
