    Default Lebanese/Turkish/Greek supermarket ? seen one ? + Roland foods products ...

    hi,
    I'm desperately looking to get all kinds of specialty food items, spices and condiments typically sold in Arab/Lebanese/turkish markets...
    got any ideas? (anywhere in the D.R.)
    Also, does anyone know how to get in touch with the importer/distributer of
    Roland foods here in the D.R. ?
    for obvious reasons my friendly supermarket won't share that info...

    The best place is L'epicier de l'orient, Plaza Paseo de la Churchill, Avenida Churchill esq. Roberto Pastoriza, Santo Domingo. They have a good selection of Lebanese and other Mediterranean/Middle Eastern/Asian foods.

    I'd ask Roland Food American Roland Food Corporation directly about their DR distributor.
    Good luck!

    Default closed 12 to 2

    But your question is antinomic : you ask for good product and you ask for Rolland food.
    Epicerie de l orient , as mentioned, is a good place with small choice but quality products. (closed 12 to 14h.)
    Of course they do not offer Rolland's stuff.

    Default thanks guys! any more on rolland?

    really appreciate your input !
    i'll check out L'epicier de l'orient next time i'm in town, sounds great,
    as for rolland, well, their products are a mixed bag, usually just packed or bottled for rolland, but one thing is sure - their customer service SUCKS...
    and won't answer my Emails.
    so, the question remains - how to contact them HERE !
    anyone?

    My fridge is packed with Roland products.

    I'd probably have to hide them if I invited Don Pedro over for supper.

    That's a moot point, however, because he strikes me as the kind of guy who hogs the con con.

    Wink got some in my fridge too, but...

    would like to buy wholesale, plus each super stocks a few chosen items-
    would like access to a full line of products...

    Beggars can't be choosers, and the Roland range is often the only option available for 'exotic' foods in the DR. Apart from their mango chutney which is really dire, I'm grateful for their tahini, couscous, basmati rice and balsamic vinegar.

    Tip - L'epicier de l'orient has a reasonable range of Indian chutneys and pickles but Asiatica on Ave. 27 de Febrero esq. Privada sells Patak's for for a fraction of the price.

    Maybe you should go investigate in "China town", I was in a Chinese supermarket in that area and they had even more Roland products. I'm sure they could get you the contacts.

    I was also happy to find my Gun Powder Tea that is usually $500/box, in this store $80...nice!
