Where to find HP Sauce in the valley

HP Sauce (reportedly so named because its creator heard that the Houses of Parliament were serving it), which is beloved of British ex-pats and Anglophiles for its distinctive flavor, is the subject of a search by Shirley Sparks. Her fellow Taste of the Town readers found four sources, though none in Henderson, as Sparks desired. Marion Dutra found it at the International Marketplace at 5000 S. Decatur Blvd. and at the commissary at Nellis Air Force Base, for those who have commissary privileges. Margaret Dillard found it at Cost Plus World Market at 2151 N. Rainbow Blvd.; there’s another Cost Plus at 3890 Blue Diamond Road. And Catherine Tully said it’s sold at the RiRa Irish pub at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, 3930 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
