Hello Philadelphia -
I'll be visiting some foodie friends in your city of Brotherly Love later this year and would like to bring them some appropriate gifts. As much as I would love to bring Graber Olives and Paso Robles olive oils, as well as some Pinot Noir wine, I can't bring those on the plane as carry-on items and we don't check luggage.
Is there anything you guys miss from the Left Coast? I know you are probably well stocked on Italian foods, and you have Trader Joe's out there as well, but maybe some Vietnamese rice paper wrappers for goi cuon, Meyer lemons, locally made spice blends etc.? I can't bring anything perishable.
Thanks so much. Philly cheesesteaks, RTM, Barnes Foundation here we come!
