This gourmet spice shop in Lower Pacific Heights encourages customers to sample while they shop. The store carries more than 300 spices from all over the world, including 50 varieties of peppers and chiles, plus powders made from dehydrated fruit. Owners Olivia Dillan and Ben Balzer make custom spice blends and specialty sugars and salts, including spicy buffalo wing seasoning, aromatic coffee-chile meat rub, bourbon-smoked cane sugar and wasabi sea salt. All of the goodies at Spice Ace are packaged in quarter- or half-cup glass jars.
