Easter trip to Trade Fair in Astoria ...

Read the reports of this place last week and decided to give it a shot yesterday.

Man that store is awesome!

Huge aisle of Indian/Bangladeshi foods. Brazilian, Mexican, Greek, Russian, Sicilian... the list goes on.

Sample of what I got:

0.5kg Cruz de Malta Yerba Mate for $1.29
4.5lbs. of Aegean canned stuffed grape leaves for $3.99
2L of Guarana Antactica soda for $1.29
235g Doña Maria Mole sauce for $1.99
250g Yoki Pan de Queso mix for $1.19
4 perfectly ripe avocados for $2
1kg tin of Nepali sweets in syrup for $2.49 (last tin - only translation on tin was "Sweets in Syrup" Origin: Nepal)
1.5L of Schweppes Tonic Water from Russia for $1.79
2L Fanta orange from Croatia for $1.29

Only bad thing - man are those aisles narrow! Two carts cannot pass in an aisle...

(for those who didn't see the original post - it's at 30th Ave. and 31st St in Astoria...)
