Another video: Shopping at an Indian market

I shot this video of Yajan Upadhyaya, the chef/owner of Cumin, shopping at Niva Grocers on Lebanon Road in Sharonville to go along with another Polly Campbell story that's running Wednesday. If you can find it, Niva has aisles and aisles of fascinating food, as you'll see in the video. I was especially excited to see Thums Up, the slightly spicy Indian version of Coke that Cumin serves. I don't have much experience shopping at ethnic markets here -- what's your favorite? (I think Miscellaneous Rodriguez on East Kemper Road has just about the best name ever, although I've never been there.)

Update: Read Polly's story here.

Another awesome video. You have a real knack for this, Lauren.

I really enjoyed this video. I had the goat ravioli and seared scallops at Cumin Monday night, ironically. The ravioli were good, the scallops delicious.

Thanks guys!

I've only been to Cumin once since they remodeled, and I have to say I didn't enjoy it as much as I did before. Many of my favorites from the old menu were missing and everything seemed more expensive. And I missed the charming simplicity of the old setup. But maybe I should give it another try...

Lauren, you're a natural.

I have lived in Sharonville for 2 years and am amazed by how many ethnic restaurants and stores are an area I assumed was "White Suburbia".

I'm glad that someone else is amused by the name "Miscellanous Rodriguez". My partner and I have a giggle everytime we drive by but have never ventured in. Please post about it if you do!
