As you step off the train at Harris Park, the first thing that hits you is the rich scent of aromatic spices. The community has one of the highest Indian populations in the state, and there are 20-plus Indian restaurants located within a stone’s throw from the station. You’ll also find tailors and sari shops with colourful, bejewelled outfits, plus grocery stores where you can stock up on bitter melons, a kilo of peeled garlic for $6, or ten different brands of ghee and Bollywood DVDs.
