I shop at the Costco in Hackensack, and until today I had no reason, or so I thought, to explore Hackensack. Today, however, my sleeping child in the back seat compelled me to take a little exploring drive, so I drove up main street and then over the bridge into Teaneck.
I was amazed at the wide variety of international food stores and restaurants. The only one I stopped in was a primarly Indian store on the left side on Main street. I bought some paratha and palak paneer (delicious) and some herbs and condiments.
There seemed to be many Latin American stores and restaurants, many middle eastern/mediterannean spots and a bunch of East Asian markets and restaurants.
Are there any places with specialties that must be tried? Are some better than others? It's like finding an old pair of pants with money in the pockets.
