A trip to a chowhound church, the Berkeley Bowl

Brandon | Jan 15, 200111:18 AM

Good day hounds,

I know I'm never shy about tossing the Bowl props, but I often do in responding to a fellow hounds quest for special foodstuffs. I need to drop a brief post for the Bowl in general.

Like the rest of you I often find myself searching for something seasonal or exotic for my home kitchen. The Bowl has been the happy ending to many of these searches. Meyer lemons, found. Lobster mushrooms, found. Mr. Esspresso whole bean coffee, found. I could go one for a while, but you get my point. I have also found the Holy Grail of other hounds at the Bowl. Matutakes, found. On stalk brussle sprouts, ditto.

The quality of the products also needs mention. They have the biggest selection of Niman Ranch Meats I've found. Dry aged steak anyone? Just last week I got the best Minneola tangelos I have ever had, rock hard (mucho fresh!) stem and leaves still intact.

I'll ramble no further right now...but I beg you all to follow. Drop a brief post with your best find or story involving the Bowl. Our world will be a tastier place.
