Regular stuff: Woodman's
Great service: Sendiks
Special poultry: tower chicken. I am upset about this one. I lived here for 20 years before stumbling on them. My "peeps" (sorry...) were "duh, everyone knows them". In other words, the reason for this post.
Bulk: GFS (bonus seeing what eateries charge for reheating GFS stuff)
Produce: Cermak. (There is a place further south that Brazil folks visit. My wife refuses to go there because they consider queuing a contact sport)
Asian: rhino foods, the Hmong mall at Mill and 76th.
Fish: I hesitate to say this but Pacific Produce. For frozen, rhino. Sometimes Empire. Empire is expensive though. If you can go there, H-mart in Naperville or Niles, Flatland territory.
Smoked fish: duh. Ewigs. Has the great smells I grew up with in NE.
Meat: bunzel's on burleigh OR my favorite, Meisfields, Sheboygan.
Outlets: Usingers, klemets, I used to like Old Wisconsin but they raised their prices and it is not worth the trip.
Cheese: since Hennings has been promoted and discovered, my favorite place is to be mentioned. I have to mention the time we locals got into an insult contest. I got the worst "may your son grow up to be a bears fan".
For other things: Neesvigs. Great source for duck fat. Awesome customer service.
Please add. We deserve better that the s**t hole Roundy's has become.
