It appears there are a lot of fans of pickled asparagus out there, because several Taste of the Town readers spotted it for Nancy Karn.

Ann Brown found it at Siena Deli at 9500 W. Sahara Ave., Barb Roth and Pat Fautt found it at Costco at 801 S. Pavilion Center Drive, and Cynthia Martin of the IFA Country Store at 3176 W. Martin Ave. said they carry it as well.

For Vicki Rosin, Kristi McNutt, Linda Beck and Brown said Dutch pancakes are served at the Original Pancake House, 4170 S. Fort Apache Road.

For JoAnn Ebright, Danny Calico said pinwheel sausages are available, in hot and mild, at Siena Deli (and he said he always calls ahead to ensure they have them before making the trip).

For Sheila Figarsky, who’s looking for Friendship Farmer Cheese, Boguslawa Boduch emailed that it’s available at the Polish Deli, 5900 W. Charleston Blvd.

And Richard Rosenheim, a fan of the now-closed Triple Play, is looking for a great, reasonably priced half-pound burger, adding, “Please, no chains or these overpriced places that seem to be popping up in all the casinos.”
