What makes Sahadi's special? What doesn't make it special???
Middle Eastern and international gourmet foods galore; some of the best AND most inexpensive coffees around. There's also nuts, dried fruits, olives, capers, spices, flours, rices and grains, couscous, bread, pita, nan, crackers, cheeses from every corner of the globe, sausages, European butters, creme fraiche and Devon cream, baklava, halwah, Turkish delight, chocolate, marzipan, tiramisu, rose water, orange blossom water, sauces, olive oils, vinegars, hummus, babaghanoush, tabbouleh, kibbeh, pastichio, bean salads, orzo salads, spinach pies....
What to buy: The way Sahadi's works:
-if you want anything from the nuts/coffee/olive bar area, you have to take a number- it's not self serve; for the deli area, just wait online.
My personal favorites: spicy hummus, pastichio, Italian roast coffee (amazing for only $3.75/lb!), roasted unsalted cashews, spicy Tunisian olives, capers, and halwah.
What to pay: Varies, but prices are much lower than the gourmet shops in Manhattan.
