ISO Regional Specialties of the west coast for Mail Order
Does anyone have suggestions for regional specialties that can be shipped anywhere in the US? For example, one of my east coast selections is philly cheesesteaks from campos deli in PA.
For Seattle and Washington specialties, try these:
Pike Place Fish Market
the place where they throw the fish
Port Chathan Smoked Seafood
Lopez Island Farms
preserves and spreads, including my favorite, Northwest Slug Butter!
Aplets & Cotlets
Walla Walla Sweet Onions
Tom Douglas rubs and sauces
Love Washington Wine
The Pacific Northwest Shop
Harry and David's in Oregon-great (expensive) produce.
Smoked salmon-don't have a source to recommend.
I haven’t found any places that have prepared food peculiar to the West Coast, but here are three good sources for seafood:
Fisherman’s Express’s shrimp are small and tedious to peel, so I use that site for salmon and scallops. For shrimp and crab, I use Great Alaska Seafood.
All my orders from these places have arrived in perfect condition*; no taste of being held in the hold too long before processing.
Software is acting up, so if the links don’t work, search for:
Phil’s Fish Market (Moss Landing, CA)
Great Alaska Seafood
*I would particularly commend Phil’s; one alleged “overnight” shipper, choosing to ignore the large “perishable” label, delivered the food in a state of advanced odiferousness. It wasn’t Phil’s fault, but they replaced it free of charge.
