middle eastern groceries in toronto.
I am an egyptian living in toronto. I need to find some groceries that sell middle eastern items. I am sooooo home sick and cooking some mom's food recieps definitly would help (aside of being cheaper than cheaper than flying to egypt for a vac ...lol)
Any one knows some middle eastern grocieries in toronto.
I have an Eqyptian friend and I did a search for food for him. Check out "Lawrence of Arabia"....Lawrence Ave between Vic Park and Warden. There are a large number of Middle Eastern grocery stores and restaurants. The best grocery stores are Arz and Nasr. Right across the street from Arz in a little strip mall is Lotus Catering which is specifically Egyptian. They have a lot of Egyptian comfort food items including molokhai. The Butler's Pantry on Markham Street is a restaurant that specializes in international comfort food including koshari. My friend says the koshari is not as good as home....but what is? I thought it was good and I have had koshari in Cairo.
Hope this helps and good luck with your search.
