Tour of the International Food Mart

Strange how I know some places 80-100 miles away better than my own neighborhood. Until today, I didn't know that the road straight North becomes NY State Route 45 and goes directly to the New Country Buffet and the International Food Mart in Spring Valley. This is far more direct than the route I used the last time.

Anyway, I didn't go to the International Food Mart the last time I was there so I thought I'd check it out this time. Mainly, it's like a regular supermarket with the addition of a number of sections devoted to foreign brands. Those sections are where you can find such odd names as the "Lucky Me!" cup noodles and the "Hello Boss" coffee. However, more than half the store is devoted to products that you can find at the A&P so I wouldn't call it an all-foreign grocery.

Unfortunately, they didn't have what I wanted: stroopwafels. If they had any, I'd have bought a half dozen boxes because those are great. The closest item they had were butterwaffelns but that's not the same thing.

Apart from the grocery, they also had a number of stores selling clothes and knick-knacks around the front of the building. There was also a small food court but I was a little disconcerted that there was no one eating there. I figured maybe the locals know something I don't so that's not where I had dinner.
