As a Korean-American foodie who resides in West Oakland, I’m lucky that there’s a slew of fine eateries not too far from our home all along Telegraph Avenue in Temescal.
Thanks to a big spring crop in Veracruz and police crackdowns on drug cartels, high prices for Mexican limes are falling earthward, just in time for summer cocktails. Mexican farmers are celebrating.
It’s enough to leave you crying in your margarita: Lime prices are so high these days that in Mexico, organized gangs have even started stealing the fruit. Prices are no better stateside.
