Myers of Keswick 03-29-2009

Location: 634 Hudson Street
Time: 2pm
People: RB, MGru, ALev and myself

Feelings: After a joyous shopping experience at Marc Jacobs specialty store where everything is around $20 or under, we came across the anglophile heaven that is Myers of Keswick. This quaint traditional English grocery store has everything from your usual English necessities such as cereal, candy bars and biscuits to meat and pie. To my surprise, I even spotted cans of vegetarian haggis, and I made a note to myself for next year's Burns Night. RB is of Scottish decent, and my British friend Russell always tells me, "Eat some haggis!" every year around Burns Night. I may finally be able to enjoy a Burns supper with this can of vegetarian haggis.

Spotting my favorite candy of all, Flake, I rushed frantically to the register. (Usually you eat this with soft serve ice cream, but it's just as delicious on its own.) MGru recommended Wispa, which tastes similar to Flake but with tiny bubblies and different texture. So, I guess it is Flake, without the flake.

RB enjoyed his sausage and mash pie. It was crisp and buttery with good saltiness from the sausage. It was exactly what you would expect it to be: the taste of bangers and mash baked into a nice crispy pie. Luckily, ALev works closely to the shop, and he is determined to try all their pies. And I, in my Times Square office, must try all the overpriced deli lunches. Bollocks!
