'tis the season. What are your favorite places to shop for chowish gifts in the Twin Cities?
I had terrific luck at Midtown Global Market (on Lake Street in Mpls), including make-it-yourself bubble tea at United Noodle, tea and pistachios at Holy Land Deli's shop, jerk chicken sauce (I can't remember the name of the shop, I'm afraid), wild rice pancake mix and blueberry syrup at Birchberry. Also, it looked like Jakeeno's is selling gift baskets and, if you buy one, you get a $10.00 gift certificate.
I think you can get some good Midwestern products at Golden River & Fig on Grand Avenue in St. Paul:
I like the grocery attached to Caspian Bistro on University in Minneapolis for unique and chowish gifts.
What other chowish treasures have you found out there and where did you find them?
