hi cathy, i wish they had something like this in chula vista, but alas, they do not! great write up on this place. would like to check it out one day just to try their take out.


Next time you are in El Cajon, try to stop in, cc. It's about one block East of Nahrain and two blocks West from Sultan. The parking lot sometimes is crazy, but drive through the Rally's lot and there is parking along the alley side of the store.


thanks for the tips Cathy!

Great looking stuff. It's amazing how the Iraqi community out in El Cajon has grown and developed.


You're welcome, cc. If you drive West down the alley, you come out across from the Shakira/Nahrain parking lot.
The small store sells some real gems, ed. You can see how narrow it is-the far wall is in the first photo. The refugees are embracing all America has to offer.


Valley Foods certainly doesn't look small. I wish more grocery stores served fresh food so that you can enjoy it during the grocery trip. What a great success story!


It's a nice place, Christine. Only three aisles of groceries, so not a mega-mart by any means, but filled with hidden treasures. We are fortunate to have happened upon it.
