As as foodie and food writer, I love food shops, I love shops from different cultures, races etc, that sell food or anything relative to food. To my delight, off Edgware Road, in London’s Arab West End, is a wonderful, gorgeous actually, shop called Green Valley, like the Aladdin’s cave of Middle Eastern cuisine, a mini supermarket, I know that’s a contradiction but it is a small supermarket.
There are courgettes already hulled out, for fancy housewives with fake nails, that are too busy to do it themselves, there are cheap kitchen utensils you can do it with, there is an amazing ” don’t let me go there” baklava section, a wonderful meat section that sells every from seasoned lamb cubes for kebab to skinned halal bunny rabbits……aaah!
An amazing array of fruits and veggies; exotic and conventional, every sort of pickle you would want and a tasty, fresh buffet Middle Eastern mezze take away section.
That’s enough for now….. you will just have to go there
