Armenian String Cheese, the big mystery

Don't laugh.
In my area of the Upper West Side I am having a tough time finding the original Sun Ni Armenian string cheese -- the kind that is shaped like a figure 8.
Supermarkets like Fairway and specialty shops like Balducci's do not carry it.
Can anyone help me?

  1. I can, but you'd have to travel an awful lot out of Manhattan. Basically any Russian food store in my area of Brooklyn has it. I guess you might as well go to Brighton Beach and make an "ethnic" (whatever that means) trip out of it.

    1. re: nokitsch

      or if you don't want to travel that deep into brooklyn, you can always hit Sahadi's...strangely i just got bought some string cheese at the fairway in brooklyn, even though i usually get it at Sahadi's...

    2. the deli on the corner of 2nd avenue and 9th street always stocked it, although i haven't looked for it there recently.

      1. Try the Amish Market on 9th Ave between 49th and 50th. I see it there every time I go.
