Where can I buy paneer cheese in Philadelphia. I live in South Philly and have to rely on Septa. Thanks in advance for the assistance

  1. Frozen in blocks at the International Grocery, 4203 Walnut. Frozen works just fine.

      Thank you. I am hoping someone can come up with something closer. Perhaps Center City or South Philly

        I don't think there are any Indian population pockets in either place.

          I second International Grocery at 42nd and Walnut. Just take the Market Frankord line, and it's a couple of blocks walk from the stop. We always get ours there (frozen), and it's delicious. It's also around the corner from a couple of the best kabob places in the city (Kabobeesh and Saad's)

      2. It's not hard to make. If you want to buy, WHole Foods used to have it. I haven't looked in a while, but they might still have it.

        1. Whole Foods on South Street has it. It's in cooler by the registers - by the WF cream cheese spreads..and the hummus

            thanks for the WF idea. That is my best bet or the easiest for me to get to

          2. I feel as though I've seen it at Trader Joe's before. Try calling them to save wasting a trip though. If not, perhaps your local Indian restaurant will sell you a small amount.
