When a recipe calls for an obscure or hard-to-find ingredient, don't fret — you might find it here.
This tiny establishment has a huge clientele base. And for a good reason — people travel from all over Sydney to stock up on spices and pantry staples for many South Asian recipes. Nepalese, Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani cuisines are among the most represented, although plenty of Pacific Island staples can be found here too. Expect to find a vast array of rice, lentils, and frozen veggies, plus racks upon racks of spices and hard-to-source herbs.
And the quality of the produce is matched by the friendly service — anything you require that isn't on the shelves will be tracked down for you within a matter of days. The store is easy to find on Forest Road, and if your eyes become bigger than your carry bags, don't fret — you can organise delivery there, too.
