Where in Washington can I get:

Pork Roll
Good bagels (the kind that make you flip your yarmulke and proclaim, "Oy Vey!")
Quality hot dogs (e.g. Sabrett, Nathan's, Thumann's, Shofar, Boar's Head--all with natural casing)
Knishes
Pizza similiar to Piecora's / Pagliacci's, but baked directly on the brick oven--not on a wire mesh thingie)

I guess White Castle is out of the question. I know Safeway sells them frozen, but the 95% of the experience is eating them at a proper White Castle.

I hope someone can answer your question!
I've been here for almost 5 yrs now (orig from Jersey) and I haven't seen any Taylor Pork Roll, Taylor Ham, or anything even similar. One of life's little pleasures is a Taylor Ham, Egg, and Cheese on a hard roll......
Good bagels..... nothing here compares to NYC bagels but there is a place by Greenlake in Seattle that wasn't too bad. Sorry I forgot the name.
Quality Hotdogs ---- good luck! Sabrett is the ultimate Hotdog but you can't get 'em out here! Thumans are good but same problem --- none here in WA. Shofar? ain't seen 'em. Boar's Head you say -- nope not them either! You CAN find Nathan's in just about any supermarket so its not a total loss.
Kinish???? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Haven't seen a decent kinish since I last visited the East Coast.
Pizza, well I'm Italian American from Jersey and I think all the pizza here sucks. Matter of fact I don't eat pizza here at all.
White Castle--- a guilty pleasure that you can not partake in here in WA unless you buy 'em frozen at the supermarket. Definately NOT the same! Half the fun of White Castle is going at 2am when you're half in the bag and ordering a dozen and some fries AND onion rings!
Now, on to the good thinks here in WA.
Teriyaki here is great. Dungeness crab is fantastic as is the salmon and the oysters.
For your fast food fix: Jack In The Box (better known as JITB) has some quality fast food. The burgers rock, the breakfast stuff tastes good, and the shakes remind me of White Castle shakes --- you gotta wait a 1/2 hour to be able to get some up the straw!
Lemme know if you find Taylor Pork Roll, Sabrettes, a good bagel, a good kinish, or dare I say it? --- good pizza.
Damn, now I'm hungry and homesick........--- OK, I feel kinda stupid. I just read your other post, you been here longer than me! From Jersey you say??? What Exit?? ( I friggin' hate that). I'm originally from Bloomfield.

You can get Nathan's at Safeway. Those are some tasty dogs!

Next you'll be asking for scrapple.

BTW, I personally have no idea WTF scrapple, taylor ham or a knish is, I just know you east coast guys are ALWAYS talking about 'em.

I spent 10 years in the midwest, and I can tell you that you can't beat corn fed beef out there, but any kind of ethnic food, with the exception of mexican, is lousy, especially Italian.

Chinese food there sucks too. You can't get BBQ pork back there. And I LOOOVE BBQ pork. With hot mustard and sesame seeds. Almond chicken, pork fried rice...

F*ck! Now I'm hungry......anybody deliver at 3 am?

I will get some of all of the above soon..........

Yeah, the east coasties always seem to complain about the food out here. It is always better "back home" or whatever. Well, GO BACK "HOME" THEN! They are always homesick, so I wonder why the hell they moved out west to begin with....

How about one of you east coasties open up a pizza place if all we have is shit out here? Sounds like a perfect business opportunity....

What an oxymoron! Instead of assholes and testicles in regular hot dogs you prefer lips and eyeballs in a "quality" dog?

You forgot huckleberries. They used to have awesome huckleberry pie at this little place in Randle.

About a month ago, I ran across an article where some gal in NJ actually started a business which basically ships Taylor Ham to out-of-state people. I'll try to track it down.

There is a Jersey Mikes Sub Shop in Renton near IKEA. They get the dough and meats shipped in---they drown it in oil and vinegar--it's the real deal!!

I think there is a store in Redmond area as well.
