Bomba Rice in Manhattan

  • 7

Hello. I am visiting Manhattan this weekend and am looking for a store closeby that carries Spanish ingredients. Specifically, I am looking for bomba or calasparra rice. I am staying close to Times Square, but can travel or walk around Manhattan. Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. Despana in Soho has it as well as lots of other delicious ingredients. Enjoy!

    1. Any places closer to Midtown that carries it? Does Whole Foods have it?

        I've seen it occasionally at Citarella but not at Whole Foods. Maybe Fairway?

      2. I buy it frequently at Kalustyan's.

        2. I believe it is bomba rice that is sold at Eli's or Agata and Valentina as paella rice.
