Where can I eat X locally?

This will be similar to the 'Where can I buy this locally' except this will be food related. I'm sure we all experienced food that we had on a vacation that we've been craving for that we have no idea we can get locally or something we had once but the menu/restaurant discontinued it.

I'll start by asking where I can get some goong che nam pla (thai cold prawns) locally. I've had it almost everywhere in HK and Lotus of Siam in Vegas and me and the gf are craving it all the damn time


Sloppy joes


Chocolate cream pies. I've had plain chocolate cream pie back in the day when the Ironwood Tim Hortons opened but since then I haven't seen a place that sold pies of just chocolate and cream without any fruit.


Wonder how long til we see an inappropriate cream pie joke

I was planning on making the Vietnamese version of this! called tom tai chan. not sure how similar it is to the version your looking for but Im guessing the only difference is the Viet version has nước mắm pha added to it. that looks bomb tho! I would also love to know where I can get this locally lol

Anyone know where I can get a good Arancini? Only place I found one was in Bosa foods, and it was pretty bad.

+1 for San remo if you're in the area. Not sure if its authentic or not but its pretty good, although I've never had similar styled pizza so I can't compare

Hmmmm..I looked up the menu on Number E Food but I don't see it. Unless its an off-menu thing

If you don't mind grocery store ones, Save On and Safeway have been the best I've found personally (they're mini ones though).

I wouldn't even say 76% but its a big thicker pizza then we can normally get around here. I swear Chicago is the only place you can get a pizza close

You can grab a quick jambalaya fix from the Cactus club for $10 or so.

Tip: you can customize it
-ask for extra andouille sausage and bacon
-extra sauce
-for the rice, you can do white rice, brown rice, quinoa, I would recommend brown rice and quinoa combo

^Meh...for good food its worth it.

Back in the day Taka's at White Rock. Crossed the border for ribs at the bbq pit in Seattle etc.

Speaking of ribs, are there any good local places? I don't like Memphis Blues. I go to Re-up sometimes in New West at the Quay market's food court. Not a fan of Hogshack all that much either
