I was advised that a query I had posted elsewhere might be more appropriate in this forum. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9236... - I like the Maritimes, having been born there, but since apples and maple syrup and potatoes are not things we can eat except on rare occasions I would like to get an idea of what we can find when we move there. Where I currently live on the West Coast we like Vietnamese, Indonesian, Portuguese, East Indian, West Indian, and Japanese foods, though we are always open to experimenting with other types like Persian foods etc etc. I am anxious to know whether I can go to a grocery store in say, Moncton or Halifax or Charlottetown and buy things like: masala, quality curry powders, various types of hot peppers, Trassi, and other ingredients of that sort, or not. I understand the major store down there is Sobey's but does anyone know if they have as good a selection of imported ingredients as say T&T or Superstore has out here in the West? Or are there any small mom & pop groceries in those down-east towns that would sell ingredients from other countries?
