International Food Club
International Food Club is located on L.B. McLeod between Vineland and Kirkman (but much closer to Vineland). It looks like a warehouse from the outside, and when you go up to the front door it is locked and you have to enter through what looks like a delivery entrance off to the left. (It kind of seems like a secret club that not too many people know about.)
Once inside you realize that this is a specialty grocery store with sections devoted to every culture imaginable. They definitely offer “hard-to-find” imported items and things that you cannot find in a Publix or Winn Dixie, and for the most part their prices seem to be very reasonable!
They also have a Café and Bakery where you can get freshly made foods like Gyros, Wraps, Deli Salads and Side items.
They have a daily lunch special each day Monday through Friday. I happen to be there on a Monday where the special is the Middle East Feast. (1 Spinach Pie, 1 Falafel, Taboule, Stuffed Grape Leaf, Hummus, Pita and a Drink for $5.99) What a bargain! The day I was there they were out of Taboule so they gave me a Greek Salad instead. I can honestly say that I loved everything on my plate, such a great variety of really flavorful dishes.
Tuesday is Caribbean, Wednesday is South African, Thursday is Greek and Friday is Indian. If the other days are as good as the Monday special then I would love to go back and try them all. Sometimes for a delicious lunch you just have to think outside the box a little bit.
