Run by a gentleman from the old country, Patrick Alexander, this tiny store is packed with goodies that would widen the eyes of any self-respecting ex-pat. Crumpets, Marmite, Crunchie bars, Shreddies, Heinz Tomato soup, Mint sauce, Bread sauce, Bisto and Hobnobs are among the items for sale. The store, at 726 - 15th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 is open from 10 to 5pm, Wednesday through Friday. For shipping information and further details, visit his website here

    Ah, yes, a close place to buy the only cereal I still like, delicious Wheatabix, and some decent tea to wash it down with. And what few people know is that Heinz Tomato is the real secret ingredient in Chicken Tikka. Really.

    Hmm - that's very interesting about the tomato soup. I could believe that, really.
    Maybe I'm going to try it one day. Thanks for the tip, Jackson.
    PS - never worked why Heinz USA don't sell it!
