Do a search for Trinity grocery store, great service :thumbsup:

I go to trinity a couple times a week. Fantastic selections, great service and good fresh spices.

You can also buy fresh paneer (1kg at a time), frozen samosas and idly with some sambhar.

They also have Ghee, pickles and other achar. For dry spices (everything from curry leaves to mace), pulses, beans and rice, they basically have everything that you'd want, as well as some ready to eat packaged things. I usually get the annoying to make things like Saag paneer in the premade and it's pretty damn tasty.

Oh, and a huge selection of Channa choura (SP? what can most closely be approximated as indian chips/crackers)

I know I'm ranting, but Trinity is pretty much the best thing that has happened to me since coming to Taipei, since I love to cook and eat Indian and Bengali food.

Did I mention it's cheap?

Two questions, are they able to help you with what you're buying or do you pretty much need to know what you're getting before you go in, and, do you happen to know if they take credit cards?

Like if you were to walk in and say, "Hey I want to make some chicken tikka and palak paneer tonight" you reckon they'd be able to fix you up?

Yep. They'll probably even give you a couple of recipes to go with your ingredients.
