Default The ONE item you'd import

All right, this may have been covered in other threads in various forms, but what is the one item (yes, ONE and only ONE! : ) ) that you'd import from another place you lived, if you could? And it can be from a brand you can't get where you are now, or it can be something very local (but commercially available--like from a non-chain corner store or something).

I think, for me, it'd be the ability to get deep-dish/pan pizza. I'd even settle for easily accessible fresh UNOs or something. While I definitely like the typical floppy pizza style out here, it's always hard to replace what one grew up with.

(and I know that when I move out of Philly, I'll miss the real cheesesteaks with amoroso's roles)

For me there is 1 easy answer and that is since hubby retired and we moved here (KY) I can't get DIM SUM!! I want it..I miss it...I crave it..I dream about it!! And I've googled til the cows come home and can't find any even remotely close. I may need to be put out of my misery. Either that or do a 3 day weekend and go back to Va Beach.

Tops BBQ from Memphis. I am just not a big fan of Texas BBQ. I'll take a jumbo pork sandwich, no slaw, extra sauce. They use Blue Plate brand and you can't get in the stores, dammit!

Default distant food memories

My wife grew up in New Bedford, MA - we used to go visit her folks once a month and I learned to love Chow Mein Sandwiches. If they are available anywhere else, they are never the same. Should be chow mein with chow mein noodles fried together with or without some chicken and put on hamburger buns.

I also miss the Portugese food, but that is available here.

This is so hard to choose. Sorry, can't do just one.


Gooseberry yogurt and scotch eggs from Sainsbury's

Tandoori chicken and Chinese chicken sold in the deli section of UK Safeways

The cheese that's a layered mix of Stilton, cheddar and something else (though once in a while I find it at Trader Joes)

Bitter lemon soda

Chinatown pork buns (where there's lots of pork instead of lots of bun)

No doubt about it - subs from the White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City. (or from a few other sub shops in my home town of Margate, NJ)

No sub sandwiches ANYWHERE else even come close.

P.S. Tried to rep you for this great idea for a thread - but I had just repped you 10 minutes ago. oops. lol

I love a candy bar called "Coffee Crisp" but I can only get it when I go to Canada... which doesn't happen as much as I'd like it.

I also love a Tony's Steak Sandwich from the restaurant in my home town. I'm sure there are Tony's restaurants everywhere, but none can match the chain of them in Mid-Michigan... at least to my tastebuds.

Dangit! Now I want a steak sandwich and a candy bar!

It's not too far away, but I can only find chinese roast pork sanwiches on garlic bread at Brooklyn & Staten Island diners. So, I would import one from the Ave. U (or Kings Plaza diner, with extra duck & garlic sauce. I haven't had one in over four years!

I can't pick one, either, but I'm feeling homesick, so all of mine are from my home state of R.I.:

Del's frozen lemonade
Clamcakes!
Sweenor's chocolates, particularly their peanut butter cups
Good pizza (I so took this for granted, growing up there)
Awful Awfuls (from Newport Creamery)

Yep! My dad's a world-class storyteller, and he used to tell my brother and me this great, dramatic story about a friend of his who tried to do that, got hypothermia, EMT's arrived to warm him up, and he went on to finish his third free Awful Awful....

We loved it.

New Yawk/Lawn Guyland pizza

New Yawk egg creams

Indian food from that street in Manhattan that has like 100 Indian restaurants.....I forget if it's 5th or 6th St, but every restaurant I tried randomly was good to great, and I have yet to have Indian food anywhere that could compare.

There's much more!
