middle eastern groceries in Seattle
Does anyone know of a really good middle eastern/arabic grocery store in Seattle or environs?
We'd like to cook more middle eastern at home. Most items are not so hard to find at speciality stores, but other items, like maftoul and pomegranate molasses are elusive.
10 minutes south, you have plenty of options.

Though my personal range does not include White Center, Burien, or other likely Southern locales, I'm certain you'll enjoy a trip to Big John's PFI ( I think I saw pomegranate molasses there last week, in fact). The tiny Souk, near Seattle Cutlery and Starbuck's #1, is another treasure. Good luck and please report what you find...
