I went to Foodstuffs on a Saturday afternoon and the store was bustling with people from all over the neighborhood. I was first struck with how small the store was, but felt welcomed by the attentive, but never overbearing staff. Throughout the store were wonderful samples of their dips, cakes, cookies, and sauces. You could almost make a meal out of trying everything (the sample tables are unmanned, so you don't feel guilty about going back for seconds). My first purchase was a Teryaki-marinated Chilean Sea Bass. I was dissappointed when I got home, not knowing that the fish was already cooked. However, after heating it up in the oven, my wife and I were surprised by its quality and flavor. So whether you are going for a good dip, an appetizer, pre-cooked foods, or quality meats and sandwiches, Foodstuffs is a sure thing.
