Grits in Canberra?

By androo - 14 January 2013 30

I thought I’d try the RiotACT brains trust and ask: anybody here know of a local store stocking grits?

thanks!

As in hominy? Try polenta if you can’t locate, although health food store might be your best bet.

And Deref, it would have been nice to have one food thread where no-one mentioned pork….Just one. Once.

A thread without pork is like a pig without apple sauce.

usafoods.com.au seem to have a decent turnover if you can’t find locally

Does the crackle and smell of sizzling bacon make you want to come crawling back to the dark side of meat eating, Poetix? :p

The texture and taste of oysters call me far more than fatty piggy bits, doc. And prawns, too.

There’s a dark side to eating meat? Is that like, when, you totally burn one side of your chop, but not the other?

Grits are bloody horrible, cannot fathom why anyone would want to ingest them. The deli outside Coles at Manuka has a very diverse range of foreign foods, including a lot of Mexican staples and some US stuff. Failing that, USA Foods in Moorabin. I visit it when in Melbourne although learned the hard way that it’s a very long walk from the train station. They do mail order and for light stuff like grits, that’d be a good option.

Reminds me of a mate who went to the US and saw grits on the menu. When he asked the waitress was grits was the reply was “Whah grits is grits!”

You do see rather a lot of blokes in cheffy duds plundering the fish and meat displays, especiallly late in the week. Sometimes trolleys wiht all sorts of goodies in them.

Plain grits, I’d agree with you, but have you ever had cheese grits? OMFG, they are awesome. And now I’m totally craving them and still don’t know where to get any here, bah!

Thanks for the tip on the place in Manuka though. I’m an American ex-pat and always on the look out for where to get food from home! There’s a shop in the Fyshwick markets that has some American imports as well–no idea of the name, it’s one of the Asian groceries and the American foods are right in the front window.
