Indian grocery at the Valero?

On the hunt for some authentic Indian snacks? A friend recently turned Biteclub on to a secret gem in Larkfield — at the Valero gas station (4856 Old Redwood Highway, Santa Rosa). Part convenience store, part ethnic grocery, you’ll find imported snacks, rice, chapati, spices, masala-flavored potato chips, and bags of “Naughty Tomato” puffs, a funky flavor fusion that taste like ketchup-flavored Cheetos. I mean, if you’re into that.

  1. I was so happy when I discovered the Indian market this spring! I had been having to go to Sacramento or the East Bay to get my South Asian treats! They don’t have as many fresh groceries as the other stores I have been to but they do an excellent job – especially for such a small space. I feel like if I wanted to follow a REAL Indian recipe, I could definitely get all the ingredients there. There is a company in Fremont that makes fresh sweets (ladoo) and I wish they could get them up here. I also wish they offered “street” food like dosas, pani puri, pav bhaji, a Bombay sandwich, fresh roti or chapati, or fresh chai. I hope they stay around for a very long time – I go there every chance I can. Best of luck!

  2. yeah, Im pretty into that. Ive been looking for Ketchup chips for years. When I lived in Canada they were my most beloved stoner food but Ive yet to find them state side.

    1. You can usually get Ketchup chips at Grocery Outlet – or a Winco Foods if you are in the vicinity of one. I love them too – I also had dill pickle chips when I visited a friend in Canada and loved those. Yum!
