Dual is an Indian grocery and spice market that sells a huge selection of spices and herbs, both the familiar and the hard-to-find. In addition they have a big variety of dried fruits and nuts, grains, rices, teas, beers, and Indian grocery items.
What's great: Their prices are excellent.
What to know: They're usually open very late. Be attentive if you're buying an item that could absorb the fragrances of the store's many fragrant spices because some of the plastic packaging isn't robust enough. The shop also has a selection of incense, cookware, and various Indian items.
