Persian Delights

Of course it's been a burning question: Now that restrictions and trade boycotts stemming from the 1979 hostage crisis have been lifted, where exactly can you get Persian caviar? Turns out it's easy. For fish eggs and all your other imported Middle Eastern food needs -- Turkish coffee, Israeli couscous, Lebanese pickles -- you can now hit the clean-'n'-shiny Nu Taste (7817 W. Sunrise Blvd., Plantation, 954-382-4026). Located next door to Caspian Persian Grill and owned by the same folks, this gem of a market also carries music, videos, newspapers, and various gift items from the breadbasket of the world. But the best aspect are the prices, which translate to "no gouging here" -- definitely a new taste for a new economy.
