An Choi Pickles Unveiled on Orchard Street

Posted on: January 17th, 2012 at 6:18 am by

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.

Vietnamese Cucumber
Kim Chi Cucumber
Kim Chi Daikon

Jalapeno
Okra
Vietnamese Escarole

Sold as half pints ($3.50), pints ($6.50), or quarts ($8.50).
