Day 35: English Food Favorites and more requests!

I love that people are writing in with requests! From finding English food favorites, to vegan restaurants, to figure skating shops. Keep the requests coming & I’ll keep you updated with discoveries.

For Caroline who moved to the States from England, I think I found a solution for you!

Caroline is missing a taste of home, especially proper English sausages (bangers?) and teas. England is one country I’ve never been to and am certainly not a good judge of authentic English food. But, Caroline, I think I found a spot for you…

Spencer’s Jolly Posh Foods.

They are located in Chicago, but some of their products are available at a few local markets (Standard Market is the closest to you). You can also order online.  Let us know if they really offer “proper” English foods! Readers, any other suggestions?

Tonya has decided to go Vegan.  Unfortunately, the suburbs have limited options for vegan restaurants. So, I said I’d do a little digging for her. The first one that came to mind is Thanks Jordan RAW Vegan Cafe in Lockport. I have been there once and am actually planning on going later this week, so I’ll give a more complete review then.

Borrowed Earth Cafe is another fairly close option. I haven’t been there yet, but it’s on my list to try next time I visit Lemon Tree Grocer! I know several readers are vegan, what are your favorites?

Of course, I should mention that Favor the Earth has a huge assortment of vegan nail polish, lip gloss, and candies!

Still on my list to find is a furniture reupholsterer and a figure skating shop. You know I love a challenge, any other products/services you need?

Coming up this week…a great book store, more on the vegan cafe, and some BIG news!
