Ethnic Food Markets in DFW
I have spent some time over the past few years I have lived in DFW looking for some cultural and ethnic food markets. I know you can get some great stuff at Central Market but having grown up in New York (born in Brooklyn,) I am always looking for relatively priced ethnic food ingredients here. Here is a list of what I have found so far, hoping for ideas, comments, etc.
A Taste of Europe (Russian and Polish) at 1901 W Pioneer Pkwy, Arlington.
Super H Mart (Asian) at 2625 Old Denton Rd, Carrollton.
Al Wadi Market (next store to the café Greek and Lebanese) at 2712 Brown Trail, Bedford. No website.
Jimmy’s Food Store (Italian) at 4901 Bryan Street at Fitzhugh, Dallas.
Kuby’s (German) at 6601 Snider Plaza, Dallas.
German Deli (German) at 5100 State Highway 121, Colleyville.
Henks Black Forest (German) at 5811 Blackwell, Dallas.
Siagon Mall at Jupiter and Beltine is what someone was refering to. I shop there alot, specicially for seafood. The seafood selection is fantastic and is about 1/2 the price of Whole Foods or CM. Live Lobsters for $9.99/lb. I found U10 head on shrimp for $5.00/lb a few weeks ago. Shitake shrooms are dirt cheap. You can also buy most all asian type staples..soy, chili sauce, mirin, ect..for much, much cheaper than the regular grocery store. There is also a bakery in the mall that has really good fresh baquettes. They also have whole roasted pigs hanging up and they will wack you off however much you want and sell it to go with sauce.
World Foods on Floyd Circle (north of LBJ across from TI complex) has great middle eastern food, a halal butcher and in-house bakery. They have pretty good Indian spices, although Taj Mahal on Central in Richardson (cross road Arapaho?) is better. Hong Kong Market on Walnut in Richardson and also in Arlington are very good Asian grocery stores. European Market and Deli on Central between Forest and LBJ has good Polish and Hungarian food and goods. Of course, Fiesta and Carnival for Hispanic goods.
Taj Mahal is on Beltline near 75.
I love El Rancho, on Coit near Spring Valley, particularly for thin-sliced taco meat, good deals and quality on certain produce, and fun extras like the Ibarra Mexican hot chocolate that comes in tablets form.
I also shop at the big Asian market on Beltline and Jupiter as well as the less huge & cool but more convenient Tian Tian on Greenville Ave in the Chinatown shopping center.
"Zituna World Market" is a very large Middle Eastern supermarket at Coit and Arapaho in Richardson. Very large selections of foods from not only the Middle East but, Russia and other countries as well.
Butcher shop, fresh produce, bakery and, a small cafeteria. And, everything is very competitively priced.
There is also a very good Polish deli (Euro-Deli) at Forest and 75. The South West corner. Across from medical City.
