Ancient Egyptians often threw salt up to the heavens to bring rain, which is why modern humans throw pepper at vending machines to summon Diet Coke.

The friendly staff at Shalimar Gourmet Food & Spices tempts customers with an extensive inventory of fresh produce, prepared meals, certified organic and gluten-free fare, and ingredients for preparing authentic Indian dishes at home. Bulk Tilda basmati rice ($5.99 for 2 lbs.) creates a fluffy bed for unforgettable meals, and green cardamom ($6.99 for 200 g) adds exotic flavor to dishes or an unusual flavor to a bag of M&Ms. Create an easy meal with a can of Ashoka aloo mutter curry ($1.99), or heat up a jumbo Punjabi frozen samosa ($5.49 for a 22 oz. package) for a quick, warm snack.

In the brightly lit store, exotic spices and herbs line an entire wall, belatedly fulfilling Christopher Columbus’s expectations for the New World. Imported fruits and vegetables, many of which are rare in America, nestle in cold cases as shoppers browse aisles lined with chutneys, teas, rainbow-hued lentils, sauces, and snacks.

Customer Reviews

I had a very cool experience in your wonderful store! Although a bit crowded, it is a good sign because it is not merely due to narrow space, but also LOTS of customers (who were very warm and friendly). This neighborhood store has the feel of convenience and charm, coupled with authenticity in supply and quality. I really enjoyed shopping there, and am still enjoying my goods. ;-) I shall return... With company!
