I don't recall seeing Ker on previous visits, so we walked past the adjoining vegetarian buffet, and while the Missus went to purchase some desserts from the dessert counter("ooohh snacks..."), I went to check out the rest of this very large warehouse sized grocer.
I could tell by the signage, that items and shelves were still being moved around. With palates of rice and other items being carted about, things seemed to be in a transition stage.
Produce was separated into three sections, but all of them had the same vegetables. The Indian Eggplants looked particularly tempting:
As were the Karela:
I was told the these were a variety of Bittermelon.
The isle of spices seemed to go on forever.
I'm fairly certain that whatever Indian spice you might need, that you'd be able to find it here. And several varieties of each. I've hesitated in attempting to make Indian dishes at home, using the "possible" inability to access some of the spices as my excuse. Well I guess that's another excuse that bites the dust.
I was totally amazed at the 2 isles of packaged and ready to eat food available.
Many brands, many boxes, where to start?
The items that really caught my attention were these:
Indian Style Chinese Hakka Noodles, anyone? Leave it to me to find Chinese Food anywhere! Has anyone tried these? There was Indian Style Kung Pao as well.
Large freezer cases lined a wall holding everything from Naan to Frozen Vegetables and Entrees:
About this time the Missus turned the corner, munching on some Indian sweets, poking me on the shoulder to awaken me from my dazed circling.
As we left the store we stopped and checked out the Vegetarian Buffet offered by Ker($6.99). It looks like we'll give it a try in the near future, so I'll save that for another post and another day.
