Village Voice's Description
In Manhattan, gourmet warehouses such as Zabar's, Garden of Eden, and Fairway feature all sorts of importationsaScottish salmon, Belgian chocolates, Turkish delight. But more compact stores concentrate on the victuals of a single nation. English cuisine may be a punchline the world over, but West Village provisioners Myers of Keswick aren't in on the joke. Aside from importing all manner of Cadbury chocs, thick-cut marmalades, and brown sauce, they also hand-make British foodstuffs. Cumberland sausages glisten in the display case, abutting steak and kidney pies, and Scotch eggsathose deep-fried amalgams of hard-boiled egg, ground meat, and bread crumbs.
Tips from foursquare
Try the Cornish Pastry: The pastry has a flaky crust, fashioned so there's a wobbly ridge on the top. The stuffing is potatoes mixed with ground lamb, peas, and other vegetables.
The quaint shop offers homemade pork pies, sausage rolls, chicken and mushroom pies, Their mince pies are quite delicious.
Awesome selection of products. Try the pork pies!
Stock up on British sweets (candy) and biscuits (cookies), but don't miss the homemade sausages and pies. Forget what you've heard about English food - the pies are excellent.
All the food a British expat or Anglophile needs, including a steady supply of Lyle's Golden Syrup and some great scones.
