It is true: the prices, even over the course of a year, have augmented to make it really prohibitive. But, if you need good madagascar pepper, this is the one and only place to find it. Now it is 12 euros for a small sachet....More

The proprietor is an arrogant, pompus individual. Unless you craft your question precisely, he will just answer yes, no or sorry. If you are not a local, you will wait and wait and wait. I have visited this place before to buy spices, but there...More

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...More
