A treasure trove of exotic gourmet goods which fill wooden barrels and soon your own pantry.
An amazing riot of a spice shop with exotic products from around the world sold in bulk from wooden barrels (lentils, beans, rices, flours), stacked to the ceiling on shelves, or displayed on trays that beckon. Hard-to-find ingredients and pantry staples alike; pricey, but amazing and a bitesee must-see.
