Tommy's Frozen Chili in Ralph's or Food for Less?

RC Provisions make the chili. It is sold under their label through Sysco in 20 pound cases (4 five pound bricks). I believe RC Provisions may also produce pastrami for Langers.

Tommy's Frozen Chili in Ralph's or Food for Less?

I am sure...confirmed by RC Provisions. Tommy's does add it own spices and flour I understand at their locations but the chili straight from RC is 95% there already. They're sold in 5-pound bricks/tubes and all you have to do is add water to get the correct consistency. I understand Carney's uses the same Chili as well....

Tommy's Frozen Chili in Ralph's or Food for Less?

Tommy's purchases their Chili from RC Provisions out of Burbank. You'll need to find someone with a foodservice account with Sysco to order as it isn't available retail.

Breaking the Code

It may be interesting to Break the Code on some of the more famous items served up in LA. My list would start with:
1) Apple Pan Red Sauce - Code Broken
2) Tommy's Chili - Code Broken
3) Sandwich Rolls served at Philippe's - ?
4) Pastrami Supplier for Langer's - ?
5) Chicken recipe Kyochon -
6) Pacific Ding Car Steak Relish Recipe -

Any more to add to the list or if you've Broken the Code?

Top Dog-style Hot Dog in L.A.?

I broke their trade-secret a few years ago. Carney's carries a natural casing dog supplied by Farmer John. I actually went to the FJ plant in Vernon to purchase them....
