We believe that our company and every Spice House represents a way of life - a way of life which is quite old-fashioned in that the human factor is still at the center of our focus. We are now in our fifty-seventh year in business; all these years gave us time to evolve into what we are today. Our philosophy has always been to make you the freshest product by small, weekly batch grinding to ensure you the highest quality spices for your cooking needs. We import spices from countries of origin which have the highest recommendations for premium quality. Often, we offer several selections of origin so that you can sample the subtle variations and decide upon your own personal preference. The tools of our trade are a series of large stainless-steel scoops, mixing bowls, sifting screens of various mesh sizes, a small vibrating sifter, a collection of old-style stone and shearing mills, and most importantly, our human senses.
The most absolutely awesome spice shop in Chicago, if not the world. Even if you don't buy anything (which you will, because it is fresh and tasty), go in for the free smells and sights!Dan Hartman, Google Review
