Kalustyan’s Kalustyan’s is a no frills kind of place, sitting in Curry Hill, where the streets are lined with cabs, a sign that food here is tasty and cheap. But Kalustyan’s is not a restaurant, it’s a heavenly source of spices, herbs, dried chillies, sugars, and tons of ethnic specialties.


We took a walk over there, planning to get Cardamom and Szechuan Peppercorn, but we couldn’t resist the overwhelming urge to get Grains of Paradise, dried Cascabel, dried Guajillo, dried Chilli de Arbol, Telicherry, and Hot Paprika. (Many posts will come from this.)

If you haven’t gone to Kalustyan’s, you’re probably missing something in your pantry.
