Having lived in the Orlando area for many years, I wouldn’t have believed I didn’t know about this little gem. Maybe because it sits inside a small industrial area, or maybe it’s because I haven’t seen an advertisement. The way I found it was through word of mouth. I thought it only fair that I pass it on to my readers, and if you live here well, that’s better yet. This store carries items that you just can’t get at your regular grocery store.  Let me give you a peek at the inside.

The reason for all these pictures is because I wanted to give you an idea of the vast variety of international items they carry.

I found a jar of preserved lemons, authentic English clotted cream, and finally a jar of grape leaves. These are just a few items that I left with last Friday.

I was so excited to test out a recipe on Stuffed Grape Leaves accompanied by Egg-Lemon Sauce. Next, will be a Moroccan dish, Chicken Tagine, with my preserved lemons. The clotted cream to accompany some homemade English scones.



Chicken Tagine


My Stuffed Grape Leaves with the Egg-Lemon Sauce and the Chicken Tagine were both delicious.  To get my recipes for these dishes just click on the links below.

Founded in 1881, it is the oldest operating grocery store in California. Since it’s opening Oakville has been a destination for both locals and visitors alike.
