Where can I find Harissa in Van/Surrey?

  1. I've seen it at the Parthenon Deli on West Broadway

    1. South China Seas on Granville Island

      1. They have it at Mediterranean Specialty Foods ( 1824 Commercial Dr.).
        Last I checked, it was only the canned stuff, but they occasionally have it in the glass jars.
        "Tamtad" {Turkish} is good stuff, if & when you can find it.
        The stuff in cans tastes like the can IMHO.

          And the stuff in tubes tastes much like a metal tube.

        2. Saw big jars at 88 market on Victoria. Strangely they had no tamarind paste which was what I was after

          1. Saw Harrisa at Bosa Bros on Boundary Rd. $4 for 340ml jar.
