Bottom-feeders' bonanza: a Draper gourmet grocer with unfathomable prices..
Light, airy, spacious warehouse with aisle upon aisle of delectable edibles. You'll find fancy soups, crusty breads, imported pastas and olive oils, hard-to-find mustards and condiments, an impressive selection of alcohol-free wines and dozens of cocktail mixers. A refrigerated section offers beer, sausages and cheeses. It's all set to a tropical soundtrack, heavy on tunes by Jimmy Buffett. The owner is a former supplier to venerable West Coast gourmet discounter Trader Joe's. It shows.
Selection is vast, and prices are good. But the real booty lies in the specials: imported pasta for 50 cents a pound (regularly $.79 to $2.69); Volker's sourdough baguettes for $1.50 (regularly $3); Desert Pepper salsas for $2.25 (regularly $4.15). There's a large selection of curry pastes and chutneys by Patak's, and six-packs by microbrewers McStiff's, Squatters, Red Hook and Boulder Ale. Highly recommended: Frisch-Gurken pickles by Krugermann and Cantare's fresh black-and-green olive tapenade.
Fantastic goodies--in Draper?!. If you've been missing Trader Joe's, don't despair. Pirate O's has all kinds of gourmet goodies at acceptable prices--and they run sales! If you're coming from a long distance for a particular product, be sure to call ahead, though. These folks have a tendency to understock, or sometimes one boorish customer will come through and buy up all the Orangina (you know who you are, miscreant!).
