Falls Church Oriental grocery going-out-of-business sale
The Lucky Oriental Food and Gifts store on Graham Road and Lee Highway in Falls Church (same shopping center as Magruder's and the Ba Le Bakery) is going out of business. (Not so lucky after all, I suppose.) It's funny that I have never been in there before but they are still well stocked and have some amazing things that I don't usually see in my usual Korean/Chinese/Indian groceries. Lots of Thai and Indonesian things. Things from all over actually.
All the canned and bottled goods and spices are all two for one. Refrigerated and frozen items currently 30% off. I cleared off entire shelves and am only $45 the poorer. I'm taking my mom back there tomorrow. I have a list of things I have never seen before but am madly googling to decide if I "need" them.
Even staples like rosemary and curry powder and dried noodles are a good deal at half off, let alone Turkish gourmet pickles (who knew) and rosewater syrup (again ???). I couldn't find any Sambal Bajak though. Maybe I was ten minutes too late, I don't know what stores carry Bajak near Falls Church.
