Atlas Market in Poway- you definitely need to give it a try! (Wondering what it is like? Let me help – here’s the whole scoop!)

You  know I love to take care of you.

Help you out.

Show you new and amazing things…(like those beautiful cookies…?)


Well I thought I’d share a pretty awesome grocery store and food court that recently opened in Poway.

The store is called “Atlas Market”  and it’s in the Target mall.

Their website says they are

“a place where you will find fresh produce, USDA Choice & Halal meats & poultry, along with specialty grocery items and unique spices.”

So there are lots of new things (like a saffron ice cream sandwich…sounds yummy to me?)

along with the usual grocery store staples….

And everything is beautifully merchandised and spacious….

Their meat counter is huge – and has some things I’ve never seen before….

Like lamb head…with an eyeball and TEETH……..EEK!

And Popkoff!

I wondered what that is, so I looked it up – it’s a dumpling filled with Beef, Chicken, Farmer’s Cheese, Pork & Beef, Veal or Pork.

Lots of unique spices, snacks, nuts, seeds, etc….

It’s fun to see all the interesting foods that I’ve never tasted….like smoked white fish

and steamed rice cake (rolled up really cute!)

I have no idea what this next thing is but I’d try it!

And right next to strange things is the familiar….

I think one of the most amazing spots in the store is their produce section…with seriously great prices…..

And an awesome selection… four kinds of eggplant!

And 12 kinds of peppers!

And fresh turmeric…who knew that was a thing??

And I didn’t know people ate Yucca…?  Did you?

They have all the regular things too….

And a whole row of specialty mushrooms….

They also have a Bakery,  a Flower Shop and a Food court!

Speaking of Food Court, we happened to be there at lunch time……so…. we stayed for lunch

I choose to order from “Indian-The Mumbai Street”

I had a chicken curry that was amazing (and had enough left over for lunch tomorrow too!)

Hubby had a seafood noodle bowl

We also checked out the Meal Prep area – they will prepackage healthy meals for you. (See menu below)

Take notice that the pancakes are 50g of protein!    They are marketing to healthy, weight conscious people who want to save time and effort.

One of their features is that you place a 10 meal order online and just pick it up – and then have meals for the week!

They also have:

Persian Cuisine (Can’t wait to try that next time!)


Italian & Pizza–

Pizzas are made to order in a wood fire oven and all toppings are farm fresh.

Japanese – Donburi– Single Fin Kitchen
A traditional Japanese Donburi is defined as a “rice bowl” consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients served over rice.

And they have an “American Diner with burgers and Craft Sandwiches”

And a Juice bar:

With some amazing juices – I had a sample of the watermelon…yum!

And on the way out we coudn’t resist trying one of their homemade popsicles

I picked the Yogurt and berry popsicle – which tasted like cheesecake!  So good!

Here’s their website if you want to check it out.
