People may flock to the farmers' market on Saturdays and the new Giant on 33rd Street is certainly shiny and huge, but one of Waverly's best-kept secrets for the city's gourmands is Punjab Groceries and Halal Meat. It's cramped in there--you're likely to trip over a 50-pound bag of basmati rice as you reach for the pomegranate juice--but it's worth it. You'll leave loaded with fresh garlic, mini-eggplants, chiles, and plum tomatoes for under $5. There are mixes for you to create impressive korma or chicken tikka at home. And even if you aren't looking to cook up Indian fare, you can stock up on generously sized bags of cumin, cinnamon, almonds, or raisins that cost less than $2 a pop at Punjab but would wound your wallet at a traditional supermarket or gourmet store.
