Trinity Indian Foods Store and other ingredient sources

Postby Loretta » 07 May 2004, 18:05

Every time I go into Trinity - Indian Foods store - close to City Hall MRT I have the strangest conversations.

It starts with 'buy 2 bags instead of 1', proceeds rapidly to 'what else can I sell you', and culminates quickly with 'want to buy a digital camera?' The guy, his name is Jobi, is a total nutcase and will not stop. Blah blah blah, 5.1 megapixels, blah blah, how about an indian cookbook, blah blah, very cheap, blah blah, special offer, blah blah, look at these pictures, blah blah, try it for yourself, blah blah, some punjabi spices? No? How about some indian music VCDs? And so on. Actually it's kind of fun and I can't help liking the guy.

Anyway, I somehow gave him one of my email adresses. Here are his latest offerings, for which I take absolutely no responsibility. This is a shameless ad on their behalf, but someone may find it useful:

Dear All,

Indian Spices are the STRENGTH of India & Indians.

We take pleasure to introduce our company as a leading importer and distributor of Indian spices ,Indian spice Masalas,Indian Instant Food Mixes, Pulses ,Pickles, Snacks ,Sweets etc in Taiwan.

Kindly refer the updated price / product list.

Should you have any requirement for INDIAN SPICES AND FOOD PRODUCTS, please do contact us and we would be most pleased to offer our excellent services.

The history and culture of Indian spices is probably as old as human civilization itself. The Vedas, the Bible and the Quran are all replete with references - direct or indirect - to Indian spices. The earliest literary record in India on spices is the Rig Veda (around 6000 BC), and the other three Vedas - Yajur, Sama and Atharva

Ecofarming is widely practiced and popularised in India with the availability of bio pesticides, bio agents and organic manures. India is capable of supplying a wide range of organically grown spices from white pepper to vanilla and spice products from tamarind paste to vanilla powder/butter. Organic herbs commercially cultivated in India are Basil, Rosemary, Mint, Thyme, Bay Leaf, Oregano & Sage and are used for culinary purposes and medicinal/cosmetic applications. The rich and varied agro-climatic condition/zones in India offers vast scope for commercial production of a variety of herbs from Mint to Parsley to Oregano.

No country in the world produces as many kinds of spices as India. At present, India produces around 3.2 million tonnes of different spices valued at approximately 4 billion US $, and holds the premier position in the world. Because of the varying climates - from tropical to sub-tropical to temperate-almost all spices are grown in this country. In almost all of the 27 states and seven union territories of India, at least one spice is grown in abundance.

Indian Spices are the STRENGTH of India & Indians.

Thanks & Regards,

Jobi Paul

Pretty droll hard sell but who cares? They sold me as soon as I saw "black channa." I've never seen them here before and they're much tastier than normal chickpeas.

I've been past it. It is on the 2nd floor of No. 137, Section 5, Zhongxiao East Road - on the north side of the road, east of the Jilong Road junction and the filling station, very close to the exit of Taibei City Government MRT station.

Great! A lot of the spices I used to buy from Asian supermarkets in Britain. Never tried the hair oil though.

Not only is this Trinity place a nice store, but they'll even deliver islandwide. :discodance:
Email them and ask for a pdf listing of their products; then email them a shopping list, and they'll tell you the bill including shipping; you wire the money and then they ship.
