I love going to stores with food in other languages. This Jackson Heights establishment is full of unfamiliar foodstuffs and packaging, including giant piles of rice, way beyond what I would ever see in my own regular grocery haunts.
Even the toothpaste is Indian: when I was there, I saw Dabur Red toothpaste, with 13 active Ayurvedic ingredients!
As part of a visit to Patel Brothers, you can wander around 74th Street visiting numerous other Indian establishments selling music, jewelry, clothing, and more.
