  • After having some Indian cuisine, my family and I got inspired to shop for some spices and venture into Indian food cooking. My sister in law, that has been in NY many times, took us to Kalustyan's . ...  read more »
  • Love this store; it can be pricy but they have ingredients here that are often very hard to track down elsewhere, unless you buy online or know what to look for in Chinatown. One can spend hours browsing the store, so it's nice that they have the soothing backdrop of Erik Satie and other classical composers dominating the shop's stereo. I'll often go in wanting to get only one or two things and end up getting so much more. If you're interested in cooking foods from a variety of regions around the world, Kalustyan's is cheaper than a plane ticket.
  • First you go next door where the process are cheaper but a number of things you can not find there. Kalustyans solves that by having every spice, salt, pepper and herb you could possibly need. Even found actual kafir likes there as well.
  • You can't just come here to pick up rice. Well, okay, you can, but they have huge varieties of everything! Rice: white? black? green? red? Salt: Himalayan? Black? Sea salt? Which sea? Quinoa: did you know quinoa comes in different varieties?
  • Looking for Indian ingredients? You'll find what you seek here. This place is huge, especially with its recently completed addition. However, be forewarned: prices are quite high. It's the literal price to pay for the impressive selection.
  • LOVE! One stop shop for any spice you could possibly need. A bit pricier than what you might find in ethnic food stores, but convenience never comes cheap right? :)
