    An entire wall of curry powders. Hard to find vegan items like canned jackfruit. A little pricy, but worth a trip even just to browse.

    ARMENIA: Bastirma with labne is Armenian salt-cured beef, lingering in a flavor limbo between pastrami and beef jerky, a strained yogurt that possesses the buttery soft texture of cream cheese.
