Because I NEED more restaurant supplies

December 17, 2010

Rocket Restaurant Resource. How’s that for a name?

Winnie asked if I had heard of this place…. I didn’t know about it but once I did I felt I had to immediately brave the rainy weather and go…. Recon was needed.

So off I went down Ashby, past San Pablo… and there it was!

They are still stocking up but the people there were incredibly nice.

It doesn’t replace Sur La Table or even the kitchen section of Ace Hardware but it does mean I don’t have to schlep over to East Bay Restaurant supply in Oakland near Jack London… that’s never a fun trip.

I don’t need tongs but I almost bought a pair because really…. they just present so well.

Industrial sized wok anyone?

If I need a new pot to make 8 quarts of bolognese again I know where to go.

Extra added bonus? They have tartlet pans with removable bottoms.  This has become a bit of a rarity and Winnie was thrilled that my reconnaissance uncovered this fact.

I was very proud of the fact that I did not buy anything while I was in the store.

I almost bought some of these champagne glasses…

for Nette since she wants to drink pink champagne out of them but I would have to purchase 3 dozen and there are limits to my love.

But at least I know they exist.  And as we all know, Knowledge is Power!
