Indian vegetarian grocery and cafe

India 4 U is an Indian grocery and café in SE Hawthorne. They do have a couple of tables if you want to eat in, but they mainly specialize in orders to go. Lunch specials and samosas made fresh daily, while supply lasts.

In the grocery store, you can find a freezer packed with boxed vegetarian entrees such as aaloo parathas (savory potato-filled flat breads) that heat up in your toaster oven, and miniature "cocktail samosas" in packs of 50.

Willamette Weekly says, "Hungry Hawthorne passersby looking for a grab-and-go bite should take a peek: the shop carries convenience store snack items with an Indian twist. Cold Limca -- the bracing, slightly opaque lime soda sold at nearly every roadside dhaba in India -- is here in wonderfully heavy fluted glass bottles. Snack mixes made of roasted, spiced chickpeas are popular, and single-serving ice cream cups come in flavors (like cashew-raisin, mango and pistachio-rose) that you won't find at Ben & Jerry's...India 4 U also carries the cooking staples available at every Indian grocery: basmati rice, myriad dried lentils, pre-mixed seasoning packs for quick meals, and phenomenally low-priced bulk spices."
