What are some shops, restaurants, stores, businesses that are off the beaten path in Erie. Locally owned. For instance, New York Lunch, Shur Fine Grocery Stores, places like that. Let's get a list of locally owned business that are often overlooked by the mainstream and support our own!

Is it Larry's Market on about 16th and Sass that sells Torrone Italian nougat candy during Christmas time?(Love the candy, it's a Christmas tradition for my family.)
Yes, these are the kinds of things that we should list. What other products do you like at Larry's?

BTW what kind of a weirdo makes sure to have the exact number of o's and h's when he says ooooohhhhh? I bet not the kind of guy who shops at Larry's Market (to get this thread back on track ;)
More importantly, what kind of a whack job counts them?:)

Yesterday I ate at the chinese joint on State (two doors north of McDonalds). Had never been in there before. Aesthetically its not much to look at but the food was fresh and good. We ate in. There were several chinese women cooking and after a bit an older fellow showed up. He brought our food out. Actually, just my food. I asked him if my daughter's food was coming and it was then I realized he was a bit mentally challenged or incapacitated in some way. Very sweet fellow. When he did bring my daughter's food he said something to the effect of "oh nice father and daughter eating dinner together" and he brought us some hot tea on the house. There were three adorable little chinese girls (maybe five to seven years old) doing what looked their homework and/or drawing pictures. They were clamoring all over the old guy and he was making a great show of finding a place for their pictures. WERG was on the radio (curiously enough) and when a song came on the old man was dancing with the little girls who were having a small riot. It was incredibly and very touching. Thought I'd mention as I think this is the kind of stuff I thought the original poster was looking for.

Also, that place at the bottom of presque isle hill (on the right just before the park entrance) has some great food and very good coffee which changes daily. Can't recall the name of it right now as it has been months since I've been there. I had a pulled pork sandwich on toasted sour dough bread with jalapenos. It was fabulous. Mahvelous darlin mahvelous, as Billy Crystal would say :)

Yes! This is what I am talking about. The restaurant is called "Happy Garden" I think. Next to the Surplus store? I have been there, and you are right. It is kind of dumpy but the food is good and inexpensive. The "dumpy" places can be the best places!

The Presque Isle place sounds interesting! Thank you!

Spoken from someone posting from "Union City" - pretty f'n funny!

And:

Honestly, some people really shouldn't get on the computer and play!

I've seen Georges, but have never been there! Saw the write up of Stevos in the Sunday paper. Will have to try both of these. Thank you! Keep them coming!

What is your favorite dish from Georges? Steve O's?

Georges - anything that comes with their "real mashed potatoes". Stevos - deep dish Chicago style pizza. Bizzarros - meatball sub.

Sorry to say that the Presque Isle Gallery Coffeehouse has closed in January. Health problems of the owner and not lack of business to blame.

Hills market is located in Weslyville. The sausage on a stick is formed like a corndog and you bake them. They also have a nice variety of meats.
Btw, I was fortunate to receive a box of the candy from the above poster. It was a nice treat and perfect gift for the holidays :)
