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.

  1. "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.

    1. 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.

        The "World Foods" "kirakat" mentioned on Floyd Circle is actually, the "World Food Market" that "LewisvilleHounder" mentions in his post.

        1. re: kirakat

          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.

        2. No love for the Indian grocers in Irving, Carrollton or Richardson?

          What about one of the originals World Food Market behind TI?

          The slew of Vietnamese in Arlington, Garland, Carollton and Irving?

            I do not have a rich history of Indian cuisine. Ditto on vietnamese. The few times I have tried them have been good and I am willing to experiment but my history is filled with mostly chinese food and italian food.
            I will definitely try the word food markets asap. Thank you

            1. re: LewisvilleHounder

              LH -- I absolutely adore that market. Very well hidden behind TI, but stocks a whole host of great Middle Eastern food items including fresh breads and cheeses. I need to go there tomorrow... I can plan it around a dim sum luncheon at Kirin, hehe.

              1. re: DallasDude

                Everything there is, dirt cheap, too!

            2. 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, 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.
