Hmmm, might have to send Rich out for some stuff, if we can't live in London ::)

Oh gosh yes thank you soooo much for this one.  DH is already planning a trip - thank goodness we live somewhat close to there!  I was thinking Edinburgh was my only hope for canned black beans.

I've seen the sri racha hot sauce in a little thai grocery store across the street from the Earl's Court Tube Station in London. It's a very cheap-for-England store over all.

Another good ethnic food source is the area near the Shepard's Bush Tube Station. Tons' of chinese and ME-sourced food at rock-bottom prices.

For edible Mexican Food, The Taqueria near Portobello Road was better than you'd think.

It's in Stoke, Coventry, at the corner of Walsgrave Rd and Kingsway.

It's fairly new from what my FIL said... it's right across from the Library.  I gather the shop has had various occupants over the years including an Indian market and an adult shop!

Another note: Does anyone know where I can get REAL dill pickles? (Like Claussen.) I have purchased about ten jars of pickles since I moved here, and even if the package says "dill," they always seem to be sweet. Anyone who can help me with this has my undying gratitude.  :)

OMG, I just spent my lunch hour wandering through Waitrose going Why can't I find any $@!& pickles!!!!  ;D

Isnt' funny how you don't really realize you miss something until it's about 3-4pm, you're at work and you're like I need XXXX NOW!!!!  I did that with Nibs recenlty - couldn't even find cherry licorice let alone Nibs!!!!

i just happened on El Azteca, a little hole in the wall between the Elephant and Castle tube and the volvo dealer on new kent rd.  i bought a few sauces and tortillas, and they were very good. the owner is mexican and very gracious.  prices seem better than lupe  pintos, but they don't have as large a range of products. they deliver to zones 1 and 2 in london.  they also cook and deliver various meals on fridays, also cater parties.  website: www.elazteca.co.uk

Sadly El Azteca has now closed, although the website at www.elaztecafoods.co.uk is still live.  I don't speak Spanish but the website seems to say that they still have an outlet near Victoria.

The upper floor of Elephant and Castle shopping centre is fantastic for Latino groceries in general, especially Colombian and Ecuadorean, and there are some other shops selling Latin American goods to: one at the Walworth Road end of Elephant Road, round the back of the shopping centre, and another in the little Latino shopping mall across the street from the Walworth Road exit of the shopping centre.

In London, right next to London Bridge station, there is a Lithuanian grocery and deli called Lituanica.  It is the subject of some discussion on this thread on the LondonSE1.co.uk website:
