Indian Grocery SPICE Stores in Artesia

SilverlakeGirl | Feb 14, 2014 05:33 PM

I have decided to go back to cooking mostly Indian food at home.

Before, when I did, I bought the bulk of my spices from Bahrat Bazaar over on Washington which is now closed. Although I have an India Sweets & Spices around the corner from me, the area in the store is particularly poor with dust, lint, trash, etcetera which makes it unpalatable.

What I have bought is poor quality and expired dates.

This, IMO, is not a job for Penzey's and, as much as I like them, the Spice Station is not an option.

Ideally, I would like to go to the Mom and Pop Indian groceries in Artesia. I don't know the names and locations of the best groceries in that area.

Any help would be appreciated. A grocery with take-out would be cool too. And one which has cooking implements is fun too.

I know about the big grocery with bad parking on San Fernando Road but it does not carry Indian spices at all.
