I was exploring what LA calls “Little Persia” yesterday, and stumbled into the coolest little market. I asked the store manager (she spoke no English) if I could take some pictures of their mixed nuts…
Which led me to the raisins…
And the … yogurt milk? How’s that for non-dairy!
Who doesn’t love coriander? Confession: I didn’t know what this was until I filmed my new series No Worries Curry.
I’m pretty sure this is cheese:
Tochal Market has the beef. Sorry, Arby’s.
I love me some big juicy melons in the morning 🙂
OK so….. the nice lady may not have spoken English but she does speak my language… she gave me free food after seeing my photos!
It’s a nut sack!
Do yourself a favor and go try out the Tochal Market in Westwood if you’re ever on the westside. I hear the yogurt milk is a supreme probiotic!
After the market, I went to dinner at Shaherzad. The best dry fish I’ve had in LA. (Yes, I ate the head). And be sure to check out their naan bread process. It’s art!
Do you have a restaurant or market in LA that you’d like me to review?
