I continually learn from Taste of the Town readers.
For example, I confess to having never heard of Ivar’s Clam Chowder until it was requested by Art Stoughton, but his fellow readers knew where to get it. Erin Collins said it’s available in the fresh-seafood case at Smith’s locations in the northwest part of the valley, and Sally Niederman and John M. Kawano emailed that it’s served at Seattle Dan’s at 8465 W. Sahara Ave. …
For Jay P. Raman, Collins said Vidalia Sweet Onion Relish is available at the Harry & David store at Las Vegas Premium Outlets, 875 S. Grand Central Parkway, and William Golley recommended that sold at Bass Pro Shops, 8200 Dean Martin Drive, which he said is made by House of Webster in Rogers, Ark. …
More on shrimp egg foo young: Joan Weglarz wrote to recommend Golden Dragon at 6120 W. Tropicana Ave., advising readers to order “New York-style.” …
More on sour pickles: Patty Little recommends Van Holten’s pickles from www.NationwideCandy.com (888-302-2639). …
