Fairway should have it.

They have both Vegemite and Marmite at Fairway. In fact, the last time we were at the Uptown Fairway I challenged Fat Guy to do a comparitive tasting of the two... no dice.

Found it!

...and I only have one thing to say: man, am I glad I left Australia when I was four! They have to be really, really sick to like that stuff! :biggrin: (It wouldn't be *all* that bad, but for how incredibly salty it is...!)

And Fairway (which I've never been to before), was impressive, although it was crowded enough to be irritating. Thanks all, for the tips!!!!

HEY!!!! We're not sick it's all in the way you use vegemite. You need a piece of toast, alot of butter and then just a scrape of vegemite and then you're set. SHEESH AMERICANS !!!! :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

I want food and I want it now

Actually, I tried some of the Vegemite on Toast with Butter today - and God Forbid me for saying it, but it wasn't half bad - I might get used to the stuff!

20 million Aussies can't be wrong! :biggrin:

Laksa,

:biggrin: I'm kind of curious about your nationality. Here you are, obviously a big fan of Malaysian food (hence the Kuih, Kuih thread) and I think (?) Australian ex-pat? Myself, I lived in Australia until about the age of 4 - Melbourne. (All I have from it, however, is a bunch of Aboriginal Tales Golden Books, and Skippy the Kangaroo!) So do tell! What's your story!?

My story:

Born in Malaysia

+ 13 years there

+ 13 years in Melbourne

+ 4 years back in M'sia

+ 4 years in Poughkeepsie, NY

---------------------------------------------

= one guy who eats just about anything

You took Skippy the Kangaroo and brought him to NY? So that's why they stopped making the TV show... :hmmm:
