My husband and I took a trip with his friend to Jackson Heights, commonly referred to as Little India, to stock up on Indian groceries in anticipation of the arrival of my in-laws. This was my first trip to Jackson Heights, though I’ve been hearing about it forever. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to check it out for my blogosphere friends.
I found this great little video on About.com to give you an overview of what Jackson Heights has to offer:
Unfortunately, we went in the evening and didn’t have much time to spend. We went to a supermarket called Patel Brothers but they were closing about 15 minutes after we arrived. We scurried around to pick up our groceries and I managed to snap a few pictures.
And how beautiful is the food packaging? I just love it.
Jackson Heights is also home to Jackson Diner, which is shown in the video above and has a counterpart in Manhattan that we’ve eaten at several times and really enjoyed. Yum!
