World's Best Spice Shops
Located in Paris’s hip Marais district, this Middle Eastern shop stocks spices, jams, honey, nuts, confections and candies from all over the world. “It’s like what I think a spice store was maybe 400 or 500 years ago. The owner has a long white beard and this beautiful, great presence,” says NYC-based spice expert Lior Lev Sercarz. Owner Israel Sorski has since passed away, but his shop remains a not-to-be-missed experience for spice lovers. 30 Rue François Miron, 4e, Paris 75004.
