A Taste of East Africa

October 26, 2009 - Karin Elton
I just stopped in at the Hindi Store. The owner, Ahmed Omar and his family, have just added a small restaurant in the grocery store.

He put a whole new kitchen in the back of the store. The store is on 208 W. Main, but the entrance is in the back. You get there via the parking lot.

He said people have been asking him to open a restaurant. I’m one of those people. I ate Somali food at the Muslim mosque on Main Street. It was really good. His mom was the main cook and she is the cook at the Hindi Store. I said to Ahmed that he should open a restaurant and he said he would like to.

And now he has six booths set up. He’ll also do take-out and delivery. For just 6 bucks you get rice, salad, vegetables and any kind of meat that you want — goat, lamb, beef, chicken. They also have tilipia fish and samosa which is a pastry stuffed with beef and vegetables and probably deep-fat fried. Really good. My daughters, who don’t like hardly anything that I make, like samosas. They’ve eaten them at Sounds of East Africa events.

The Hindi Store is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. seven days a week. Give it a try.
