Can anyone point me in the direction of the nearest shop that sells the large packets of spices? Star Anise, Cinnamon, Fennel seeds, Turmeric, dried chillis etc? I’m a recent blow-in and having done all my previous spice shops at the glorious Khans in deepest darkest Peckham now find myself on the cusp of running out of a few key ingredients and resent paying £4 for 3 Star Anise at my local Tesco.
Try Shaheen Supermarket on Stoke Newington High Street or the K Store on Clapton Road.
@ClaptonPieman just checking you’ve seen this great response
Cheers Emily and thanks for the heads-up Sahar. I’ll do that this very minute. M.
@ClaptonPieman The Turkish Food Centre does far more than their name suggests. They certainly do large packets of spices. Their store at 89 Ridley Rd is a bit of a Dalston institution and well worth a visit.“
