I just went to this excellent store yesterday, and feel that I should share this info. with you folks. It is called Haig's Delicacies and is located on Clement St. in San Francisco's Richmond District, between 7th and 8th Avenues. The store sells all kinds of imported packaged food from around the world, especially India, southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Northern Europe. If you are into condiments, spices, tea, pickles, candy, preserves, or that sort of thing, this is a great store to check out.
I was talking to the owner, who is the nicest guy, and he said the store has been there 40 years but business has slowed, as the neighborhood has changed and local residents tend not to patronize the shop anymore. So I thought it would be a nice thing to give him a bit of free promotion here. I don't know of any other stores with comparable selection, quality, and reasonable prices. He has only the best stuff, whether it is harissa, french feta, basmati rice, or roast chicken flavored potato chips from England. Plus they have a deli where you can get their excellent hummus, sandwiches, deli meats, cheese, and so on.
I really have no affiliation with this store. I juat figure if I didn't notice it for so long, many others may not know it exists, and would like it if they did!
