Glazier’s appeals to New Yorkers hungering for home

New York expatriates definitely are fond of their old-familiar regional foods, and Glazier’s Food Marketplace, 8525 W. Warm Springs Road, has filled a niche in that regard.

So it was no surprise when Pam Crawford of Pahrump emailed to say that Fox’s U-Bet Chocolate Syrup and hot cherry peppers in oil, both popular in New York and both being sought by Steven Engelberg, could be found at Glazier’s. Donna Alper also found the chocolate syrup in the kosher section of Smith’s at 2211 N. Rampart Blvd. …

For Mike Charland, Janet Willett emailed that pickled Polish sausages could be found at the C-A-L Ranch Store, 232 N. Jones Blvd. And here’s some foodie trivia: Willett said the name is Backroad Country and it’s made by Troyer Cheese Co. Troyer is in Millersburg, Ohio, and may be familiar to lovers of Amish cheese. …

For Murray Leitner, Nin Ansara of Ricardo’s, 4930 W. Flamingo Road, emailed that the restaurant serves steak picado, made with New York strip. …

And this is for all of you lovers of split-top hot dog buns: I spotted some King’s Hawaiian split-tops at Fresh & Easy. Haven’t tried them yet, but the idea of the hybrid is intriguing.
