Costco food finds - 3rd quarter 2012 [old]

The Costcos in the bay area are carrying small twin tubs of what they're calling Africa red peppers. These are small red peppers stuffed with feta and mizithra cheeses and marinated in oil. They are absolutely divine!
I found them in the refrigerated section where they stock the hummus and stuff.The brand name is mani, if it helps!

Best brand of Sambal?

Thank You! I bought it yesterday and used it last night in a fish curry. It was great! Thanks again :)

Best brand of Sambal?

Which store-bought brand of Sambal is the closest to the original? Making it from scratch just seems like so much work...

Best Thai Curry Paste?

I actually followed the recipe on the box to a 'T', except I drastically cut down the amount of paste I put in as some reviews said that it is really hot. Oh, and I used second press coconut milk

Best Thai Curry Paste?

I tried the Mae Ploy brand red curry paste and while it totally nailed the aroma, something was off in the flavors. Is there something out there which is better or do I just need to try harder next time?
