San Francisco is such a great city. I’m about an hour away from the city so I’m not there as often as I would like. If it was at all feasible I’d pack up and move there in a heart-beat, but it’s just not practical for my husband’s commute.
If I DID live in San Francisco, I am pretty sure I would do most of my grocery shopping at Rainbow Grocery – a vegetarian, worker-owned food co-operative (does it get anymore San Francisco than that?).
After attending VegFest on Saturday, we headed over to Rainbow. The best part about visiting Rainbow with 3 other vegan foodies? You can take an hour looking at every single thing in the store and nobody minds!
My favourite part about Rainbow is the enormous selection of bulk spices. They have just about every spice you could think of! I picked up some ancho chili powder.
I got quite a large haul. I haven’t had a chance to restock much of anything in my pantry since the accident so I wasn’t going to pass up this great opportunity! Highlights include Dandies, some sprouted tofu, bulk almonds and walnuts, baking supplies (for an upcoming bake sale in Santa Cruz! Stay tuned for more info!), some dried beans, and…..SOY CURLS! That’s right, I finally got my paws on some soy curls! I have yet to try these things, but the vegan internet makes them sound heavenly.
I will need to find the perfect recipe for my first soy curl experience, any suggestions?
