  Stockton Street groceries. 2008
by sunshine9689

I like lunch shopping on Stockton street [mostly between Washington and Jackson Streets].
There are many places that sell pork, ducks and chickens for a very reasonable price (for example, $8.76+tax for a whole duck). They are located next door to each other - 1041 Stockton Street, 1045 Stockton Street.., etc.

After buying meat, I usually go for some cheap instant noodles (for example, Nissin, Six Flavours). They are sold anywhere from 39 to 69 cents per package and come in different flavors (seafood, beef, pork, mushrooms, etc). All you need is to boil some water and let them soak in it for 3 minutes. Noodles can be bought in grocery stores across the street from meat sellers.

Lunch like that costs about $10 for two people! ;-) And it tastes good.

Just make sure to go during the day, cause it sells out by 6pm ish.
