An Choi Pickles Unveiled on Orchard Street
Get ready for a surprise. Against the odds, pickles are returning to Orchard Street below Delancey. And, as it happens, just a few doors down from where Guss’ Pickles peddled product for the better part of a decade before departing in 2010.
Goth jewelry boutique Occulter recently abandoned 83 Orchard Street and is presently relocating to 131 Essex, leaving an empty sliver storefront for the taking. Judging by the lettering in its windows, An Choi annexed the adjoining room for a new eponymous pickling operation dubbed “An Choi Pickles.” It also says “inquire within,” which we did.
A small table sits in said space with containers at the ready. There’s a host of different pickles that An Choi is offering to patrons:
Traditional dill pickles
Kim Chi Cucumber
Kim Chi Daikon
Kim Chi Cabbage
Cajun Mixed Olives
Sold as half pints ($3.50), pints ($6.50), or quarts ($8.50).
