Hands down one of my favourite food stores in Portsmouth. Having been there for as long as I can remember, Akram’s has always been THE place to go if you need your far eastern ingredients. Ranging from Indian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Jamaican and many other places, Akrams is your ticket down the spice trail. I can quite happily spend my time walking up and down the aisles buying items that I don’t recognise but I will know will probably blow my head off. For a chilli fiend such as myself this is Mecca.
Alongside the obligatory pastes, sauces and spices, they also boast an in-house butchers, a veg section and frozen fish. A nice touch is the cooking tips I get concerning certain produce I have just bought. Get yourselves down to Palmerston Road, check it out and immerse yourself in an exotic part of Southsea.
