Anybody got a decent middle eastern market/grocery source near Stamford/Norwalk? Just move to the area and went on a wild goose chase today for merguez. Need a reliable source for feta, olive oil, spices, etc.

PS have gotten takeout from Layla in Stamford and thought it was decent.

    This is a bit out of the way, but Hanna's in Danbury has a small shop attached to the restaurant. It's on Lakeside Ave.

      if you don't mind driving over to White Plains, Yaranush is a great mediterranean market. 322 Central Ave, WP, (914)682-8449, you can call and ask if they have or can order if you are looking for something specific, but think you'll find it worth the 20 min or so drive . . .i enjoy going and discovering new things each time i'm in there.

      for restaurant or take-out, Myrna's is delish, Stamford and now a Greenwich location. All the local Lebanese are there

        Welcome to CH and the FFD area. Lots of good reviews you just posted. Thank You.

        Jfood would differ with the assessment of Myrna's though. He had a falaffel there a week or so ago and it was fairly tasteless and the bread was stale. Not a repeat in jfood's opinion.

          admittedly have never had falafel @ Myrna's . . .

          I also like Yaranush in White Plains, very clean but must take cash with you or Amex. Great variety of products.

          Can't guarantee they have what you are looking for, but you might try Zeytinias market on Route 7 in Norwalk, just north of the DMV. They tend to have a lot of middle eastern stuff.
