Default Foods - New York City

For those in New York, just found the following in the Village - both are great:

A salt and battery (get it.)
English chippy on Greenwich Ave just down from 8th Ave. Cross St is Jane St I think.

Myers of Keswick
Hudson St - south of 9th Ave.
Pork Pies, Cumberland Sausages, Steak and Kidney, a whole host of other stuff - check out the url.

not sure, the fish and chips would be pretty cold by the time they got to Michigan!

There is also a fish and chip place in Brooklyn and Myers will send you supplies. Myers supplies a shop on Long Island and there are other shops on the island that are much cheaper

Don't forget:


http://www.teaandsympathynewyork.com/

next door to "A Salt & Battery".

A shop selling stuff like Maltesers, Yorkshire Gold, Blackjacks, plus BBC videos and a tearoom that does stuff like clotted cream teas.

Okay, I'm from Devon so the clotted cream lacks a bit, but it's a thousand times better than the whipped up concoction usually served here.

I've been tempted a few times to get some pork pies from Myer's. Anyone have any feedback on how they taste? I like 'em moist and packed full of gelatin.

Can't remember how much gelatin is in but have tasted their pork pies and they are good. They do different kinds if I remember correctly.
Also tried their scottish pies, scotch eggs and sausages and these too are very good.

I couldn't eat pork pies in England - revolting- too much gelatin. But I'll 'em from Myers, very tasty and some gelatin, though not a lot & the crust isn't dry. I love their sausage rolls too.
