Huli Huli Sauce Pasadena area?

Thanks Burger Boy. Is Surfas the restaurant supply in Culver City or something else? I don't mind traveling to get it if I have to. I will check with How's too.

Huli Huli Sauce Pasadena area?

Just returned from Maui and bought some Huli Huli sauce at the Star Market while we were there. Thought we could find it here but have had no luck. Any ideas on where to get it in the Pasadena/Glendale area?

Where can I find beef wellington and tournedos of beef in Vegas?

Thanks for the replies. Nice report Bill on Capitol Hill! Guess we know why the Burgandy Room is defunct now! We are leaning towards the Golden Steer even though it doesn't have Beef Wellington.

Where can I find beef wellington and tournedos of beef in Vegas?

We used to go to the Derby (Brown Derby?) at the MGM but it closed. We really liked the ambiance and the menu there--sort of old school type dishes like beef wellington and tournedos of beef. Any restaurants like that in Vegas?

Chef's Touch in Solvang, Ca

I just wanted to put in a good word for the Chef's Touch in Solvang, California. I think I read about it on this website which prompted us to try it for lunch this past Saturday. Very cute cafe with seating inside and out. They have cooking classes and sell cookbooks and other cooking tools. They have a blackboard menu with specials and also their regular menu. You order at the counter and then take a seat and the waitress brings you your food. You can pick your beverages of choice out of the cold case (including wine and beer) and they also have ice tea on tap.

I ordered the tuna/smoked mozzarella pannini sandwich. It was very, very tasty. Served with a couple of green olives, a garlic dill pickle slice and side salad for $9.95. I could not finish the sandwich. My husband had the reuben which was actually pastrami on rye with sauerkraut served pannini style with the same sides. He said it was very good. I think his was about $8.95. He had a German beer to go with that.

We were one of two customers there at that time of day which was early--about 11:15 a.m. The waitress brought us a slice of apple tart for dessert for free. She was really great. She also brought us their menu for Sunday breakfast in case we wanted to come back the next day. The menu looked really good but I can't remember anything that was on it except huevos rancheros. They only serve breakfast on Sunday. Lunch is served 11-4 and then dinner 4-9.

Thanks to whoever recommended this restaurant. Its a gem in the middle of Solvang.

Where can I get "weiner wagons?"

Does anyone know where I can buy "weiner wagons?" They are the buns that are kind of like a tray with a slot for the hot dog? They used to have them in the 70s but can't seem to find them anywhere anymore. Thanks.

Can anyone tell me where I can get good sourdough rolls for Thanksgiving in Pasadena/Glendale? I want the kind that are crusty on the outside and soft inside. Thanks.
