The Find: Sheep’s milk cheeses
From Hungarian kashkaval to Bulgarian feta, you’ll find dozens of cheeses at this specialty store founded by the Attars, a local Lebanese-American family. (They also own the popular restaurant Ya Hala, located just next door.) Although both International Food Supply and its sister location, Barbur World Foods (9845 SW Barbur Blvd; 503-244-0670), are focused on Lebanese foods, they’re also sure bets for essential pan-Mediterranean ingredients like saffron, rose water, sardines, grape leaves, olives and olive pastes, pomegranate juice, orange blossom water, phyllo dough, olive and grapeseed oils, bulgur, teas, Turkish coffee, dried fruit, nuts, and much more.
