Finally got what the dried shrimp I needed that too in 3 types. Well stocked with food from atleast 10 cities around the world. Check out the unique washroom key at customer service counter. Plenty of parking.

Ta Lin is one of my favorite places to shop for food in Abq. Always something interesting and different to explore and taste. Whenever I wander the aisles, I always feel like I'm taking a journey around the world.

My experience with their service was positive- that being said I can't help on the classes as I've not participated - wish I could provide insight! Good luck!

Not sure about fresh food. I did see a facility but the times I've been there they were not open.
