After having discovered kulfi (Indian ice cream) at Saffron Spot - Artesia (Little India), I was feeling a bit more adventurous. So one day, after lunch at Luscious Dumplings, Inc. - San Gabriel, UnHipLA and I walked down the street to Punjab Indian Grocery Store in Alhambra.
The Punjab Indian Grocery Store is located in a small strip mall on the border between San Gabriel and Alhambra, a few doors down from Pho Super Bowl Vietnamese Cuisine - Alhambra.
It's pretty small, too small for me to feel comfortable taking pictures of the interior, but filled with lots of videos to rent, packaged Indian foods, and fresh Indian sweets.
Unfortunately, I think most Indian sweets are too sweet for me so I didn't try these. But if you like them, do check them out.
Earlier, UnHipLA had stopped by one night for dinner with some packaged palak paneer and a kulfi bar for me. Both tasted really good. So if you're not in the mood for going to a restaurant, but have a craving for Indian food, it's a decent alternative.
I also bought a package of cardamom pods, which I use for making Chai Black Tea, Pho Bo (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup), and sometimes add to Bo Kho (Vietnamese Beef Stew).
