“Go here if you're planning a Mexican dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

We shop here often for Mexican spices and condiments. Their selection of salsas is excellent. You can also find jalapenos, mole, tortilla chips, and canned black beans. It's also one of the few places in Paris where you can get dry black beans in bulk if you're willing to start from scratch. They do carry tortillas (very pricey) - both corn and flour. You can get decent flour tortillas in the big grocery stores (Old El Paso brand, no less) for a lot less. For corn tortillas, we go to Mexi & Co on rue Dante just south of Notre Dame. They make their own and sell them in one kilo frozen bundles.

“I always bring my visitors here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

it's small and crowded but worth a visit. Atleast if you like nuts, dried fruit, olives, spices, alcohols... or just random delicatesses.

the old couple can be hard to get a hold on if there's a lot of people so decide what you want, stand by the first "counter" and wait - they fill up your plastic bags and weigh everything before you pay.

“Spice in Paris - Izrael”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2008

As Claude wrote, the choice of spices is great and special. We have visited the shop a few times over the last ten years, and we've always found something special to purchase.
