12 Jun Spice Mountain in Borough Market
Borough Market is great for food shopping. I know a lot op people complain about the high prices. But I think in general you get high quality for your money. Spice Mountain is my favourite when it comes to spices and herbs. I don’t think I have ever seen a place with so much choice. From all kind of chilis to curry mixes and an endless variety of salts.
The ladies on the stall of Spice Mountain are not only friendly, but also very knowledgeable. You can ask any question, they know their stuff. You can also buy their spices online, and the site will also give you a number of recipes with their spices.
They also have a good collection of gifts, and I think you make every foodie happy with one of their chilli boxes. Or a bottle of pomegranate molasse. Or a few of their curry mixes.
I like to see their business seems to be pretty good, as they recently moved to a stall with double the space of the old one. Which means even more spices!
