A trip to any supermarket can feel like an adventure. But an outing to an international grocery store is something you can truly get lost in. And we mean that in a good way.
We voyaged out to Pickerington’s GN International Grocery, which opened last weekend as the largest Nepali-owned grocery store in the country, to show you around the new space and give you a taste of its unique, global offerings.
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
With 25,000 square feet of shelves stocked from across the world, GN at times feels more like a culinary safari than a grocery store.
GN’s eclectic produce offerings include whole lemongrass and by-the-pound turmeric
Prickly chayote (top), breadfruit (second from top) and quenepa fruit (bottom) are available for purchase.
GN also offers a massive selection of international snack foods, like masala-flavored Lay’s (second from top) and Korean shrimp crackers (bottom).
Patrons can also browse an entire section dedicated to ghee, a clarified butter popular in India
While it isn’t open yet, a full-service restaurant and bar, Jhapali Kitchen & Bar, will open in the same building as GN International Grocery. It will serve Indian and Nepali food, in addition to beer and liquor from around the world.
