My Turkish Wife and I are looking for Turkish grocery stores and Resturants in Southern CA. Can anyone help?

She is looking for:
1. olives she likes

2. and white cheese not Feda but looks a little like feda but tastes milky but not yogurt or Kiefer.

3. Also, Cherry juice, in Istanbul there was one company for example called Cappi that she liked. I wasn't able to finf it on a google search.

4. Also a Turkish community in Los Angeles and surrounding area.

I'm trying to make her transition easy. If you could help with addresses and phones of Turkish grocery stores and Resturants in Southern CA, I'd sure appreciate it.

There are numerous ethnic markets and delis throughout the San Fernando Valley. Talk to your local grocer. He can often order those specialty items you or your spouse likes.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

We have a Turkish grocery store in my area, but sometimes I am not able to find what I am looking for. A good place to find things is at www.tulumba.com

It's a little more expensive, but when I really want something and can't find it here I am usually able to get it there.

Wholesome Choice is the best! But I thought it was more like Persian than Turkish...

If you're in the Riverside/Moreno Valley area send me a message and I'll help you find stuff locally. In a general sense I'd recommend Super King markets in Anaheim and San Fernando. They have very good produce for dirt-cheap and also stock a lot of Turkish brands. It's also always very crowded. I haven't been to Hamle's in Fountain Valley personally, but I've spoken with the owners and it seems like a reasonably safe bet that you'd find or be able to obtain pretty much anything you could want through them.
