The Feta connection: Halal International Market

We eat a lot of omelets here- and like feta for the cheese. Usually we go to Halal International Market and buy their bulk feta- but this morning we were out- and they weren’t open.

So- I went to Kroger.

$3 got me 4oz of feta- Halal charges $3.99lb for greek domestic feta.

To get to Halal- ignore the sign at the corner of Wayne and Keowee across from the Sunoco- Take Adams one block into South Park to Theobald court-  turn left and enter the market from the rear. They are behind the car lot.

The feta is in the deli case. They have 2 other “premium grades” of feta for $1 and $2 more- to my taste buds they are more creamy and less salty- and I prefer the denser, sharper less expensive Feta.

And a hint- to keep it fresh longer- keep it submerged in water in an airtight container.

Just another reason to shop local. Halal is also a great place to buy pita bread, spices, olive oil, and tea biscuits- so poke around.

Tell them Esrati sent you.

    That place is awesome. When I’m feeling lazy on the food front, I go to Halal, buy a giant thing of Pita, a brick of feta, and a couple cans of one of the better brands of Babaganush they carry. That’s be around 12 dollars, and provide almost as many tasty, effortless meals.

    I am glad to see this post.  I love their feta cheese as well.  When my friend is in town from Pakistan, we make a stop there shortly after his arrival so he can stock up on halal food from Halal.  He is a picky eater, but we always return with huge quantities of food.

    Would Halal consider putting a sign out on Wayne that indicates they’re open? I had no idea they were still open, and I’ve been interested in finding Middle Eastern groceries.

    @Emily- I’ll make the suggestion to Faez.I’ve tried to tell him that people think they are closed.
