In San Diego there is Rosie Lee's http://www.rosieleesshop.com/about

and Shakespeare's Corner Shoppe http://www.ukcornershoppe.com/

Shakespeare's has a great selection. We picked up both black and white pudding, a whole case of Heinz Baked Beans (for $1.35 a tin) and a couple of Curly Wurlys (although these last were smaller than I remember). Finishing off your shopping day you can pop to the pub next door for a pint and a Ploughmans.

I am finding out a lot of things thanks to this site/thread. I was over at the end of November and made himself and his lads, Beef in Ale, Yorkshire puds and roasted veg. The only thing I could find apart from the basics was Guinness lol. Spent the day worried it would not 'taste right'. Thankfully it turned out just perfect. I had got the ingredients for sticky toffee pudding, but never got the chance to make it for them. He failed to tell me his oven wasn't working, and I had to use a slow cooker and small counter top oven, so not enough room to do it all for one meal. That's what I get for staying in 'The House of Trouser'

I think the only things I will miss are back bacon and lamb. I am still searching for locations in Louisiana that may sell them. I found a farmers market in the Baton Rouge area that has a Lamb stall, so himself had declared we will drive down to New Orleans for a few days. I can get lamb and he can get shrimp then.

My digestion is upset just from being in the same house with it all!

By the way no relation to the owner

Was there (Mesa) on Sunday. Brilliant pasties and a great atmosphere! We even managed to bring some uncooked ones back for our freezer

Highly recommend if you are in the area.
