Ethnic Grocers in Greater Ft Lauderdale
My apologies if this has been covered before, but I did a search back about 6 or 7 pages and didn't find anything comparable. I'd like to start a thread of favorite ethnic grocers in the greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward county area. It happens all the time - I pull out a cookbook and don't have one ingredient, like ground rose petals or fig leaves.
I'm interested in: Middle Eastern, Indian, Pakistani, Chinese, Thai, South American, West Indian, Malaysian, African, Eastern European, just about anything where I can go poke around and try go find what's in the packages I can't read. :)
Here are my contributions to get started.

Just take a trip down 441 between Commercial and Sunrise-ish. In that stretch there are at least 2 or 3 of lots of different markets, Thai, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Lebanese, Caribbean, Jamaican. On Military Trl. and Sample Rd. there is a huge Brazilian supermarket as well. For produce, I suggest the Swap Shop on Sunrise and Martin Luther King Jr. (Lyons). The produce area there has fresher, better produce with a much wider selection that almost any market or supermarket.
I work around the corner from that area, and frankly, my results have been hit or miss. Sometimes I find great stuff, other places I wander into are just plain dirty. Any recommendations in particular?
I do hit the swap shop once a month or so for produce - I should have thought of that and included it in my initial post.
Thanks for the response!
