Love this place
Aug 2019
You know when you go somewhere and eat something and wish that you could make it at home. If that happened to you in Puerto Rico, this is the place has all the stuff that you need. From Churrasco to rice to beans, this is how you spice it. I used their Chimichurri on about 2 pounds of steak. Amazing.

Wide selection
Aug 2019
Randomly walked in here, and very happy I did. They have a great selection of seasonings and spices ... both bottled and raw. The lady I spoke with was very knowledgeable in the different ways to blend their products with food. Looking forward to getting home and cooking with these.

Nice little shop
Apr 2019 • Couples
Trying to find parking isn't fun, but this is right in the middle of Old San Juan. A big selection of spices and teas, a decent amount of sauces and other goodies. The employees were super friendly even though we got there literally minutes before closing (spent 45 minutes trying to find parking...). If you're into spices and such, it is a must.

When we visited the Spicy Caribbee store they recommended the Herb and Sea Salt blend. It increases the flavor of every recipe we make and makes everything taste delicious. We love this spice blend so much we ordered a case of this spice as well as the Garlic and Herb blend. This spice is like nothing we have ever tried before and enhances every dish we make.

Sauces and Spices
Jan 2019 • Couples
Beautiful locally made hot sauces. We bought three different kinds. After getting home and using them we wished we had bought more. They were so good. It's so nice to find something that adds tastes to your cooking that you can't get with products available from your own home town.

Wonderful spice, sauce and tea assortment
Dec 2018 • Couples
This lovely spice shop has a wide assortment of local spices, sauces and salsas, and teas. They had a bewildering variety of hot sauces, and we bought several after trying samples. Very tasty, and a range of heat to satisfy any palate. They shipped our order home for a very reasonable price.

More spices than almost anyplace in lovely gift bottles and jars make wonderful presents from Puerto Rico. The owner/manager is welcoming and friendly.

A fun, quick stop

The owner was friendly and helpful, and the store has lots of interesting spices for souvenirs and gifts. Definitely worth stopping in while you're walking around the old city.

Cool local store
May 2018 • Friends
We stumbled upon this store while walking around Old San Juan. There are lots of sauces and spices to sample (don't try the hottest one first or you may not be able to actually taste the others :) ). They were very helpful in providing info on the various sauces and spices, and gave recipes for using them. Prices are reasonable. Be sure to check them out!
