WHERE, OH WHERE to order LISA'S GOURMET's fat-free brownie!

No, it's not them. Bump. They are still untraceable.... even the phone number listed on 411 isn't operational.

And yet every week we see a new stack at the one place I know they deliver.

WHERE, OH WHERE to order LISA'S GOURMET's fat-free brownie!

Im trying to get into contact with the company/bakery that provides with these amazing "Lisa's Gourmet Fat Free Brownies" to a few places around the city.

They're $1.50 and come in a really simple plastic wraps. There's no information on the labels themselves. 250 calories, no fat, Lisa's Gourmet.

So far I've found them at Cafe 71 (on 71 and Broadway) and the 110th Westside Market.

I have an event for a diabetic friend and would love to order a case (like 30-40) but this Lisa's gourmet has no presence on line! It's so frustrating. Even their number and store isn't listed.

If anyone knows, PLEASE help!

A Great Grocery Store That Also Delivers? (Hyde Park Area)

Hey everyone,

I'm going to be moving to Austin for grad school in August and will, for the first year or so, be without vehicle as they say. A bike and public transport pretty much.

I already have an apartment near school and work; what I'm worried about is groceries (and Ikea/Wal-Mart trips but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it).

These are pretty common here, but I was wondering if there's an accessible grocery that delivers to that area for those bulky once-a-month grocery trips?

Thanks in advance!

isclaimer: I'm a "healthy" eater if that changes the recommendations. Not vegetarian (lots of fish and meat substitutes) but no red meat really. Three years dating a vegan girl will weaken a man.

Lisa`s Fat-Free Brownie?

Does anyone know where someone can buy these in bulk?

Because I've looked online and for the life of me I can't even find the company that makes these. They just occasionally show up at local retailers and my nearest "source" (Westside Market) is no longer carrying them.

Anyone know where they come from?

Best Sushi Delivery on the UWS?

I'm looking to have a few amazing rolls delivered around Broadway/110th and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations.

My favorite place is hands down Zen Sushi in the East Village but alas they don't trek up to my neck of the wood.

I only know about VINE up here which is very eh by comparaison.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Plan my Valentines' Day (Food and Beyond)

Me and my friend (friend, not date) are looking for fun ACTIVITIES to do on Valentines Day.

We don't know what yet but we're thinking of hitting a play (a recommendation of something GREAT would be immensely appreciate as we're both fans of non-musical theater),

a few good bakeries (those quirky chocolate bars or whatever),

a restaurant.

(Does Manhattan have chocolate bars? LIke http://www.julietteetchocolat.com/? I miss it terribly)

I would really appreciate your help in planning a fun, non-romantic day around the town (pref. midtown and uptown).

Regarding the "AMAZING" Halal Cart...

My friend and I want to try it since it is said to be a cornerstone of NY eating.

A) Is open on Friday evenings? Until when?

B) And perhaps most importantly, is there anywhere near the cart where people can SIT down with their plates and enjoy the meal. Perhaps with a nice dessert place nearby for a bite afterwards?

=)

Columbia University Area; best chinese food (delivery)?

*Anti-Foodie thread warning* For COSTCO shoppers....

SnackHapppy are you generally happy with the prices at Aubut?

I checked their website, they're near a metro and and have no Membership/entrance fee. That's perfect for me.

BUT how do you find the prices there? Especially on these goods?

Thanks in advance!

*Anti-Foodie thread warning* For COSTCO shoppers....

Woah, this is a lot of great information! Thanks!

I looked up the websites you linked up and Aubut would seem like the best option for me; Bulk buy, accessible (near Atwater, correct) and the prices seem good.

Do you have any experience with it? Price-wise is it really a real saving (cereal and milk-wise, haha)?

Columbia University Area; best chinese food (delivery)?

I guess it really is Ollie's then.

Alright; Curry Rice with beef and an eggroll shall stay my chinese diet.

*Anti-Foodie thread warning* For COSTCO shoppers....

I know that this is the very antithesis of foodie but I have a question.

I don't have a COSTCO membership however I'll be needing to stock up on some things soon and wanted to know:

1) Do you absolutely need the membership to shop there or can you just walk in? Is there a one-time visit fee?

2) If you've ever happened to buy cereal in bulk from there, at how much would you estimate a 12-pack of Special K (Vanilla, haha)?

I know that one is a bit random but I know of a website that sells them for 55$ US and I'm trying to decide which would be the best offer?

*Bonus round: An estimate on Grand Pre Milk packs?

A HUGE thanks in advance for any answer to this esoteric inquiry! ;D

Columbia University Area; best chinese food (delivery)?

I'm no expert on the matter but I can't help but think that Ollie's isn't the best out there. At least I hope it's not.

Menu recommendations are welcomed as well. :)

Healthy delivery options?

Sorry- I blonded out on that one, haha.

I'm on the Upper West Side.

Healthy delivery options?

I know that there are salads on every delivery menu but as a whole asking for a healthy delivery meal that's not over 1,000 cal is like ordering a bowl of caramelized snow.

But are there any restaurants that have delivery menus tailored to this?

Thank you!

I'll be sure to stop by then! Thanks (boy, one week away, uh?)
I can't seem to find it on Google maps though. is it just the corner of Broadway and 125th? No need for a shuttle for like 9 blocks.

(and I've found the website "Buy the Case" for my bulk needs, haha)

Is the ARTISANAL premium cheesecake really that great?

http://www.artisanalcheese.com/prodin...

I've heard a lot of good things about it and am considering ordering it for a home-warming thingy I'm having.

For those of you in the know, is it simply a nice, satisfying cheesecake or something truly unique taste-wise?

Thanks

(P.S. If you're familiar with delivery jems around the UWS feel free to contribute to my quest in my other sinking thread :D)

I'm sure there are a lot more recommendations to be shamelessly obtained from local Chowhounders, haha.

If you also have meal suggestions at these particular places- I'm all ear.

Breakfast wise, I've heard good things from "Good Enough to Eat" (http://www.yelp.com/biz/good-enough-t...). Thoughts?

Thanks!

First on the list is Fortago then. I don't know how I didn't know about it since it's so close and sounds really decent according to online opinion.

What didn't you like about Blockheads's food? Why the others instead?

What do you recommend at Indian Cafe (I don't actually think I've ever *had* Indian Food)? I will give it a try.

Hello experienced Foodies,

When it comes to delivery I'm a creature of habit meaning that I get stuck in a rut easily and only stick to 1-2 places. However, I'm really excited about the new year and want to try new things (at my door, haha). For the sake of diversity I'm currently putting together a list of delivery foods in my neighborhood (Which is Broadway and 110th for reference).

My current go-tos:

BREAKFAST: Kitchenette (I'm a big breakfast food fan and theirs is pretty great when it comes to taste. Only downside is that it's quite expensive....)

MEXICAN: Blockhead (I love it. Great taste/ affordable price/ reliable service).

"AMERICAN"FOOD: Metro Dinner @ 100th/Broadway (Good burgers, pasta dishes...Could be cheaper on the dishes. Unfortunately I haven't really found a GREAT burger here yet )

CHINESE FOOD: Ollie's (....yeah. Not great but right next door).

My lacking areas are DESSERT (the thought of amazing dessert delivered to my door is giddy-worthy) CHINESE and ZE BURGER, but this is a new year and I'm open to suggestions on all areas (sushi, indian, etc...) and make sure to recommend your favorite!

Obviously the cheaper the better for a student but this is Manhattan, haha.

HUGE thanks in advance and if this thread works I'll be sure to post impressions as I sample your picks. :D

That's very interesting! My first year I only stayed close to, well, Westside. Is Fairview delivery free for us?

Did you happen to notice these products of mine there? (Along with fresh seedless grapes, haha?) I'd love to buy in bulk there.

** Are you sure it's 125th and not the one on the 75th??

I tried to go through amazon but the problem is that with the delivery cost and whatnot it really doesn't seem any more cost-efficient. It's the same price as the grocery store in the end...

Aren't there any great deal online grocers that also deliver?

I'm a college student in Manhattan, UWS/Columbia to be exact, and looking for a website to use to buy my go-to foods in bulk and have them delivered to my dorm. (I ended up spending WAY too much on delivery/take-out last year)

Considering that it is one hell of an expensive neighborhood and a big drag to basically go to the store every 2-3 days. I would love to have these things at my disposal in my room.

Is anyone here familiar with a (reliable) website that delivers wholesale products (we're talking cases and +12 packs) in Manhattan at a good price that'll save me some money on buying them individually?

THE ITEMS IN QUESTION (to give you an idea):

- PARMALAT MILK (The extended shelf life milk that keeps at room temperature for months before being opened. Very important, haha)
- Special K cereal (I LOVE their Cinnamon/blueberry/yogurt/berries/vanilla flavors equally)
- Vegetable Thins (these are crack to me https://www.epiceriedirect.com/lookpr...
)- oatmeal packs
- water bottles (the big 1-liter ones preferable)

HUGE Thanks in advance!

On the topic of MILK: Looking for...*Hard*

How much of it did you order?

Did you get a rebate or actually have to pay more?

....I wonder if they ship.

On the topic of MILK: Looking for...*Hard*

It's embarrassing but I haven't been to Costco since the "Club Price" days. Has anyone really seen it there?
