I'm so glad to have discovered this message board! There is a such a large variety of restaurants in LA (both in cuisine and in quality) that this is a great resource.
Does anyone know where I can find a fresh starfruit? Preferably close to Redondo Beach, but anywhere around LA would be fine.
I've looked at Ralph's, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and even the local small grocer with bongs in the window. *The* Farmers Market seemed to have more prepared food stands than produce when I went, so I didn't see any there. This has perplexed me for a while now, as I could get fresh starfruit easily when I lived in upstate NY...go figure. ;)
1)NY style cheesecake topped with fresh starfruit slices.
2) Starfruit slices dipped in chocolate.
