Where is the best place to buy bulk dry beans in Phila?

i like to go to the indian grocery store next to the 7-11 on walnut street past 40th street on right hand side (they're closed on tuesdays)
big bags of beans, traditionally used in indian cooking, and the best part is 1 lb bags of spices on the cheap.

Claudio's House of Cheese, 1/2 block down from DiBrunos in the Italian Market, does sell a homemade soppresata that may impress you. Bon Appetito

Philly chowhound heading to Big Easy

I'll be in NO after Mardi Gras and look forward to all the great eats! Any suggestions for great breakfasts and brunches, lunches under $20 and dinners under $40---not looking to break the bank. Where's the good spicy creole food? Will mostly be in the touristy areas but will travel for not-to-miss food. Yo! Thanks :)

Vegetarian in Philly

If you venture down South Street, Maoz between 2nd and 3rd is all vegetarian...the maoz is a falafal sandwich in a freshly baked pita with a salad bar of interesting israeli salads and veggies for toppings. Only stools for 8 people to sit as many stand and eat or take out. Cheap and great eats!

Transplanted New York-er needs help! Philly BYO's and Center City delivery (Philadelphia)

For delivery or take out- Phoebe's BBQ on South Street between 21st and 22nd. Yummy

For BYOB my favorite place is Las Caszuelas on Girard Avenue near 4th street. Very creative mexican from the Oaxaca region and a family-owned restaurant. Love the grilled cactus salad and everything I've ordered. You can bring your own Tequila also and they'll turn it into margaritas!
