If there’s a better selection of hard-to-find produce in LA than the one at Sasoun, we haven’t found it yet. Walking down their aisles is like a Lorax fever dream, with options like longan, rambutan, burdock root, and four (!) varieties of persimmons (plus all the fruits and vegetables you’d see at your local Ralphs). It’s also a great place to go for Middle Eastern goods, stocking a wide selection of halloumi, tons of spices, and absolutely tremendous house-made muhammara, hummus, and pita chips.
