Homemade Potato Chips from Cobblestone Foods 01-28-2013

Location: 199 Court St. BK
Time: 6pm
People: RB, CK and myself

Feelings: There are many times I miss Osaka, but one particular thing I miss is tasty and fresh prepared food. The Japanese style deli-food hall, usually located in major department stores, would usually have isles and isles of excellent ready to eat gourmet dishes, meats, cheeses, desserts, drinks, you name it. Cobble Hill's Cobblestone Foods, located on Court street, is as close as it gets to what I miss.

This popular caterer's store location is not greatly spacious by any means, but they have all the essentials: delicious prepared food, cheeses, pickles, coffee, baked goods, ice cream and drinks. Many items are locally sourced.

The service is courteous and friendly, and CK swears by their mac and cheese--and he usually despise cheese. RB and I enjoy their vegetable items such as pan seared broccoli or brussels sprouts, which are both perfectly cooked and seasoned.

Perhaps the best thing at this store, if I may bravely say so, is their homemade potato chips ($4.99). As we waited in line, I saw several people buying these chips. These are not your 99 cent Utz chips. Heavenly crispy and luscious, these chips just melt in your mouth. The flavor of the the fresh oil lingers. You taste the hint of salt.

Prices are not cheap at Cobblestone Foods (about $10-$12 for a pound for prepared food), but the quality is top notch. You will definitely get what you pay for, especially these delectable potato chips my entire neighborhood seems to be obsessed with.
