Jamil Ahmad and his partner, Jerusalem native Rafat Mardawi are pleased to announce the opening of their new Jerusalem International Grocery at 34396 Tenley Ct. on Coastal Highway (near the old Tijuana Taxi — soon to be a Donut Connection sometime this century). The guys are involved in several local businesses and hail from Bethany Beach.
The store carries a full line of goodies, fromimported olive oils to tahini (including my favorite brand “Beirut”), and many Goya products including beans, spices and olives. Things not to be missed are the Turkish Delight candies, U-Bet chocolate syrup (the secret ingredient in the authentic egg cream!), vanilla halvah, Turkish Delight jelly candies, all sorts of tasty nuts and seeds, along with Mediterranean, Russian, Kosher, Latino and Turkish ingredients and spices. They also carry a full line of beautiful glass hookahs for evenings of communal fun.
Give them a call at 302-644-1700 to verify hours or if you’re looking for something special.
Stop in and tell Jamil that The Foodie sentcha!
