Grocery and Food Store in San Mateo - Aladdin Gourmet
As the pandemic appears to be fading away, life is starting to return to normal. But the new normal is different from what it used to be 2 years ago. From work-from-home to social distancing and wearing masks, the world has changed forever. Among the relatively few positive changes, has been the huge increase in the appreciation of the benefits of home delivery or curb-side pickup. It saves a lot of time and effort, helps avoid the sometimes-maddening crowds at malls, restaurants, supermarkets, delis, bars and other places where people gather, and increases our safety because COVID-19 has not yet fully disappeared. The rise in home delivery services, especially for food, is proof of this.
The downside to online ordering and home delivery is that food is the most personal of matters in terms of what suits you, what pleases the palate and how much you feel like spending. Going to the supermarket or deli meant that you could see, and often touch, products before deciding to buy them. That ensured you got exactly what you wanted. When it comes to online ordering, there is usually some doubt if what you get will be what you wanted. However, there are exceptions to this. There are a few established and trusted markets that have been serving their neighbourhoods for decades that guarantee that the food, produce, groceries, etc. that you buy online are exactly the same as the excellent products available in the store.
A 30 Year Heritage of Excellence in Food
Aladdin Gourmet started in 1992 as a small grocery store supplying the residents of San Mateo, who loved the cuisine of the Mediterranean region, with the very best food possible. The quality and variety of the food items that the store sold not only delighted those who loved this kind of food, it garnered a large number of new aficionados who found the fare not just delicious, but also healthy. Search for “Mediterranean diet” and the results that come up will provide ample proof of its taste and health. It is not just bloggers and influencers who say this, the information comes from such reputed authorities as John Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic and many more. People of the Mediterranean region are among the healthiest on the planet with one of the longest lifespans.
At this point, you may be saying to yourself that while health is very important, so too is taste. Mediterranean food has you covered there too. From the most delicious of takeout food to fresh meat, vegetables, fruits, pastries, spices, fresh produce, dairy, appetizers, condiments, plant extracts, packed meat, canned food, oils, sweets, snacks, bakery items, jams and honey, frozen foods, sauces, pasta, rice, grains and much more, it is all available at Aladdin Gourmet – in the store, at the curb-side or online.
One Stop for the Best
Long-term San Mateo residents may remember the Aladdin Gourmet of old – a small grocery store that catered to the culinary tastes of a discerning but limited clientele. What Aladdin Gourmet was and what it is today are very different. The modern store has a deli department that is a great go-to food spot. There is a natural and fresh halal butcher shop and produce market that specializes in hard-to-find produce. The bakery that offers the best of Lebanese foods has been a huge hit from day one. The wide range of food and products available here makes it the one-stop destination for the very best in both imported and domestic foods. First-time shoppers are impressed not only by the range of items available and the quality but also by the fact that buying the best does not mean a huge grocery or food bill. The icing on the cake is the excellent service provided by the staff at the store which only adds to the pleasure of shopping here.
