Only crazy people travel half way across the world to go to a spice store when they have the best spice stores available to them in Israel - yes and no.
There is no where is the world like Kalystyans. I couldl perhaps live there.
Fifteen years ago it was a small store front with dried fruit, bulk grains and spices, olive oil and tinned products from Syria and Pakistan, Ghee and metal pots from India. Today it has expanded into a market that sources its goods from every corner of the planet. Dried fruit and nuts which are at the front of the store are now a very small section and have been replaced by a large and attractive selection of cook book and history books from India, North Africa, The Middle East, Pakistan, Greece, Armenia, Iran........
....and Mexico. Chilis, chilis, more chilis and maize.
