Coffee & Tea 4

First of all thanks for the replies on my "sufganiyot" question.

This time I have very different concerns:

1. My mother, in VT, needs me to find a very specific Vietnamese coffee; the name: Tung Nguyen) which, by the way, she afirms id the best coffee she has ever had. Being South American, and having traveled all over the world, I asure you that this woman (a major coffee drinker) is probably right so give it a try...any ideas where I can get it for her?

2. Which is the best Polenta place in town?

3. Any suggestion for grocery shopping in the Financial District. We live on the West side of the highway, and other than a 24 hour deli, and two very crappy Gristedes, there is nothing!!! I am aware of Zeytuna, and a couple of other stores, but they are completely opposite of where we live and it's a pain after work to get over there. As for their order taking abilities, for delivery, they SUCK!! Tried doing that with them and it was aweful; what I got was not even close to what I needed and ordered!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
