Place to Order Food Online?
I'm moving to a place where there is VERY little selection at the grocery store.
Is there somewhere that has a large selection (without outrageous prices/shipping) for food online? I'm looking for asian foods (canned/boxed) as well as things like bottled/canned roasted red peppers, chiles, artichokes, etc.
Any help would be appreciated!
In the L.A. area Vons, Albertsons and Stater Brothers offer web ordering and home delivery. I have been using Vons for a few years. Ralphs also offers special ordering via their web site for UPS shipment.
There are a zillion web stores out there that offer food stuffs, usually when I am looking for a particular item, and don't have a web store in mind, I just google the name of the item, and Google will return a bunch of hits on retailers.
Here are a few purveyors that do national distibution to get you started:
Well, while the original poster is currently in Los Angeles, s/he indicated s/he is moving to a city that has extremely limited selection of ethnic food, suggesting the move is definitely out of the Los Angeles (or anywhere remotely urban or near urban) area.
I wonder if the original poster can be more specific as to where s/he is moving. Perhaps a Chowhound in the area has knowledge of where to purchase ethnic-specific food in the area.
If you like Spanish imports like oils, cheeses, charcuterie, and the like, check out La Espanola Meats. They have a wide selection of roasted piquillo peppers.
If you are currently in L.A., check out their store in Harbor City before you move away.
