Readers help find split-top buns for hot dogs in Las Vegas

Charles Butler is looking for split-top buns — other than the sweet King’s Hawaiian brand — and his fellow Food Finders know where to get them. Rob Lindley found them at Albertsons at 201 S. Stephanie St. in Henderson in “a pack of six, seemingly gourmet, in the deli section.” And Ann Brown said seeded and plain varieties are available in the freezer case at Great Buns Bakery at 3270 E. Tropicana Ave.

For Tootsie Popowcer, who’s looking for restaurants that serve medium-rare hamburgers, Lisa Armstrong recommended The Capitol Grille and the NM Cafe at Neiman Marcus, both at the Fashion Show mall, and Montana Meat Company at 6371 Centennial Center Blvd. And I recently had one at the Divine Cafe at the Springs Preserve.

For Erica Thomas, who’s looking for Open Pit Barbecue Sauce, Kathy Miller said it’s available at Amazon.com.

And for Bruce Baird, who’s looking for supermarkets that sell gazpacho, Nancy Nolette suggested Trader Joe’s.

More on chicken-fried steak: Greg Brackett recommended the one served at Snaps restaurant at the Eastside Cannery.
