Hey Hounds,

Anyone know a source for a good quality argan oil in Manhattan. Drew a blank at Fairway, which is normally good for such arcane items.

Thanks

    Kalustyan's carries Mustafa's Organic Morrocan Argan Oil.

    I can't comment on quality as I've never had it but fyi, it's pretty pricey (250 ml Bottle $39.99 /500 ml Bottle $59.99)

    Good luck

      Whole Foods in Union Square also carries Mustafa's organic Argan Oil. It's $29.99 for the 250ml bottle, near the olive oil section. That's the only Argan oil I've seen so far in the US; it's great stuff...I love it on top of Greek yogurt.

          I've only tasted it once, Erica, at a Moroccan restaurant in Paris. Which is why I asked about it here.

          It's got a wonderful taste and I'd like to use it more.

          Still haven't actually managed to buy any, but at least I know where it's available.
