Miniature Hamburger Buns

southlake is 100% right, but order ahead because stop &shop runs out.make sure you cut them and keep them tightly covered because they dry out fast.
the thing about sliders is the whole melt in your mouth feeling.

Vietnamese (particularly Pho) in Ffld Cty

There is a place on wood ave off of park ave in Bridgeport. I think it's called pho saigon. it's run by a vietnamese family, they also have good viet style coffee. down the street is a great asian store where you can get all the stuff to make your own pho. the best vietnamese food is in Boston

I need a lesson on Peruvian food in Westchester!

CEVICHE! it's the pride of Peru and the original style of this dish. also pa pa con juan gaina (spelled wrong) it's cold boiled potatoes with a yellow chili sauce thickened with crackers. also anticuchos (grilled marinated beef hearts) trust me, cooked right they are addictive. my neighbors are Peruvian so I get to hang out and eat. portchester has a lot of restaurants. i'll talk to my neighbors and let you know the names.
