Good news for Bill Chavera: His fellow Taste of the Town readers say he still can get knishes in Southern Nevada. Paul Gary emailed that square ones are available at Costco at 791 Marks St. in Henderson, and Ann Brown found them at Bagelmania at 855 E. Twain Ave. and in The Kosher Experience at Smith’s at 2211 N. Rampart Blvd.
For J.J. Sharbaugh, Brown said calamari and flounder are available at Sprouts Farmers Market.
For Sara Shulman Fraga, who’s looking for sour pickles, Mary Lou Villalovos reported finding them on Amazon.
