Holy Land Grocery & Deli
The Twin Cities are blessed with an array of international specialty shops, but perhaps none is more comprehensive than Holy Land in northeast Minneapolis. Whether you're craving something savory (halal meats, green olives with garlic, varieties of hummus), sweet (baklava, dried glazed orange slices, shredded coconut), or simply that odd ingredient your average grocery doesn't carry (ghee, harissa, cardamom tea), Holy Land should be your destination of choice. In a hurry and craving a healthy meal? The Nordeast location offers a deli counter with gyros and falafel, and a lunch and dinner buffet table of delicious shawirma, curries, rice, and pastries—all at bargain prices.
