A unique place to shop & eat - Edit

They focus on Middle Eastern cuisine and grocery items, so if that's your flavor, this is the place to go. Mr. Said makes nearly everything there by hand and what he doesn't personally prepare, he orders from a specialty place in Long Island to bring to our neck of the woods. For vegan eats, I highly suggest the vegan chili, hummus, falafel, orzo salad or tabouleh...all of which you can combine into salads or wraps. The Said family is kind and does thier best to provide quality, specialty foods and products.

Pros: Lots of Vegan options, Owned by great people

Cons: Certain items can be pricey

only mediocre and always too salty - Edit

Originally located on Bank Street, Saeed's has been in business for around 25 years, and every 5 years I have given this place a try, hoping for improvements, but each time I am rewarded with the same dismal results. The hummus and the baba ganoush both are so salty as to be inedible. The last time I bought them as take-out, I took them out to the garbage.

The stuffed grape leaves are ok, but rather than being made on site, they come out of a can. You might as well buy the cans yourself. So stay away from the deli items, and instead shop here for their grocery products, for which the store is sunny and spacious and the selection expansive.

Cons: too much salt
