BUYING GROCERIES & DINING OUT

 

Having your own ethnic food is like a taste of home for most international students. In this section you will find a brief explanation of types of food purveyors in the New York area followed by a list of ethnic and American groceries and restaurants not far from Purchase College. 

 

Shopping for food and groceries.  "Grocery" stores are supermarkets or "chain" stores are where you can find your daily groceries.  Prices may vary depending on the "chain" and the community in which the particular store is located.  There are also "specialty shops" for ethnic groceries.  "Kosher" items can be obtained in most supermarkets.  They are marked by the following symbols: U and K.

 

Fast Food.  Many Americans eat "fast food'" (food that is cooked and/or prepared very quickly) such as sandwiches, french fries, fish fillets, hamburgers, salads, and, of course, pizzas.  These are found in restaurants such as McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King, or in diners or delicatessens.  Fast food can be high in salt, sugar and fat, so you are cautioned not to rely on fast food restaurants.
