Foods of all Nations, Charlottesville VA

If you are in Charlottesville, say for a football game or a concert at nearby John Paul Jones Arena, then Foods of all Nations is a must-see-and-taste gourmet grocery. Try the Ivy Three Way, a delicious sandwich with Boursin Cheese. Or, grab a dessert – the cream cheese filled carrot cake topped with caramel and nuts is delicious! Or, maybe you are looking for that one special ingredient to finish off a recipe, like imported mustard or Vanilla bean paste or Paella rice or Surrey County Virginia pork products. You will find it all here, along with excellent produce and friendly service. Rumor has it that this is the Chips Grocery made famous by John Grisham’s book, “Skipping Christmas” and portrayed in the movie “Christmas With the Kranks.” This is a special place and worth visiting again and again.

Take It Away, Charlottesville VA

Filed under: charlottesville, food — Tags: , , , — momsdiner61 @ 1:59 am

There is nothing better than a Take It Away roast beef sandwich with Swiss cheese and a generous slathering of their famous “House Dressing” served on a fresh, crispy-on- the- outside, soft-on-the-inside French bread! The “House Dressing” is a yummy mayonnaise- mustard delicious secret sauce of the highest order. A Combo with Edam cheese on French bread is another winner – country ham and turkey bathed together in “House Dressing!” And, if you want to take lunch completely over the top, add a side of bread ends and more “House Dressing,”. Finish it off with a rich chocalatey brownie and call it a day!
