Baked Beans and Tea Bags

If you are missing some of your home comforts, don't worry there are places in Manhattan where you can get some British favourites!

Morton Williams Supermarkets, with multiple locations across New York City, have a small selection of British goods.  They sell things like Heinz spaghetti, salad cream, HP Sauce, Heinz tomato soup, Rich Tea biscuits and PG Tips tea bags.  It's quite a good selection for a local supermarket.  Check their website for locations and opening hours

Some Food Emporium stores stock Heinz baked beans, Heinz soups and PG Tips.  I go to the one on 2nd and 51st Street and they have these products, but not all stores carry the same items.  For more information visit

There are two shops that have been recommended to me that specialise in British cuisine and groceries, but I haven't been to visit them yet.  Both are run by people from the UK and they stock most things you can think of from sausages to Walkers crisps and Cadbury chocolate.

The first is called 'Tea and Sympathy' located in the West Village.  They have a grocery store and a restaurant that serves typical English Fayre.  Their website is

The second is called 'Myers of Keswick' again located in West Village.  They make their own sausage rolls which are meant to be delicious.  Their website is

If you visit either stores before I do, let me know how you get on!
