Hands down, the most varied selection of spices, teas, and foodstuffs. Anything you could imagine livening up your food with is sold there. Especially if you are trying to avoid paying a premium for specialty items off of amazon or the like, this is your place. The prices for more "regular" items are a little high, runner beans and jasmine rice were not the best priced. But, they had more different types of tea than I knew existed, and they even have pure MSG if you are looking for that sort of thing. Definitely would recommend if you are trying to upgrade your cooking. Absolutely impressive.
Best selection of hot sauce in nyc.... As well as anything else you could imagine to not cook boring food.... lol
