Canadian making her first trip to Trader Joe's- advice?

lissar | Aug 27, 2004 10:36 AM

Next weekend I'm going to be driving down From Toronto to Philly with my husband and some friends, to visit my best friend and her husband. I think they live in Bryn Mawr, rather than Philadelphia proper. I have two culinarily goals- to eat my approximate bodyweight in real cheesesteaks, and to go to Trader Joe's.

I know (through assiduous reading of chowhound) that their stock varies between regions. What should I buy? I can bring $200 worth of stuff back, if my husband doesn't try to stop me. I can't bringm eat or uncooked veggies back, and although we'll have a small cooler I think we'll be using it for drinks, not a lot of imported cheeses.

So, what are your favourite Trader Joe's items? And, incidentally, where should I eat cheesesteak?
