Why locals recommend it
They have just about every Iranian food item I need, packaged up and ready to go. I usually go here for dried items like mint, sour barberries, and dried limes. They also have packaged Persian sweets like gaz, nougat candy, and nokhodchi, chickpea flour cookies. This is a good option if you’re looking for a slightly faster shopping experience. The shelves are jam packed, but the guys who work on the floor can navigate the aisles quickly. Ask for help.
