Culture and charm abound at this tiny grocery stocking different Persian goodies.
This tiny Iranian grocery has been going for over 25 years, in an area well known for its Persian community. Unless you’re after a specific ingredient for a Persian banquet, the great pleasure of this peaceful little place is in the browsing – you’ll come away with things like saffron, honey with dried fruits and a host of piquant new discoveries. There are usually a few locals hanging out who are happy to discuss the finer points of snacking on watermelon and sunflower seeds (‘Iranian pop corn’), or to wax lyrical about the work of Iranian poets stocked in the adorable miniature library set up in one corner. Opposite that, the pastry counter, where you can investigate the delights of jam and raisin pastries like the papillonis, or traditional nougat.
