that's a great idea - i think that anyone and everyone who's experienced and love TJ's need to go to their website and petition for a Dallas location. hopefully they'll be inundated with requests and will be forced to at least take the Dallas area seriously as a potential market. go to www.traderjoes.com

i couldn't get enough of the "just chicken" and "just salmon" in the refrigerated case. super fresh, super convenient and tasted awsome..... still haven't found a comparable product for the price.

not to mention their soy and organics for the price TJs was known for.....

frozen custard, filipino food, pork belly, vodka/caviar bar and water ice - all needed in Orlando

can anyone help find any of the following in or around Orlando:

1. fresh or frozen pork belly - most markets i've called don't carry it.

2. any restaurant that cooks/prepares pork belly

3. filipino restaurant and filipino market

4. water ice - looking for the kind you'd find in Philly along with pretzels. had a great one on Edgewater Dr, but i think they closed up.

5. caviar and vodka bar - complete with blinis and creme fraiche. if none exist, please let me know where i can go to buy these items.

6. frozen custard - similar to gelato, but still very distinctly different

any suggestions is greatly appreciated!! happy hounding!
