Tentura in Los Angeles?
October 17, 2011 4:00 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a Greek liqueur called 'tentura' in Los Angeles, CA, USA. The usual big box alcohol vendors don't seem to have it, and a few Greek specialty shops didn't either. Anyone know of a source?

This brand of tentura appears to be distributed by a San Jose company, Esteson Co. Try calling them?

Ask your local liquor store to special order it.

Have you tried Hi-Time in Costa Mesa? They seem to have everything.

Bar Keeper on Sunset in Silver Lake is a smaller specialty shop. The owner is very friendly. If they don't have it, he may be able to tell you where to get it.

If an portly old guy curating the cheese area asks you how you found them, just say "The dude from bicknell sent me". You might get some good cheese for free.

Did you try Papa Cristos? I know they have a shop and from the looks of the website, they sell liquor. (And grab a lamb sandwich while you're there!)
