        there's a little spice place on Sunset in Silver Lake. Not sure the name. It's near Hyperion.

            Spice station also has an outpost on Main Street in Santa Monica! :)

              i know - i drive past it all the time and i've been battling the temptation to go in and spend way too much money on things i don't *really* need :)

              1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                do it! not sure how i survived before my rosemary salt, my vanilla sugar, my strawberry sugar, my smoked paprika, my mexican oregeno, i can go on & on... spice station RULES! i went in for the first time last month and quickly became obsessed with the place and went back the following week, and the following week as well. i think i'm all set now :)

                  Have you gone to Penzey's, so that you can compare the two stores and recommend one over the other?

                  1. re: Outerspace

                    Outerspace, Penzey's is solid and you can find the spices you will need. Their Extra Fancy Vietnamese Cassia is more delicious than any other cinnamon I have tasted...and I have purchased all of their cinnamon options.

                    Spice Station is more interesting; you will find some surprises! We purchased their vanilla paste in a jar and used it in our Thanksgiving sweet potatoes...great flavor! Spend some time there talking with the employees and let them share some of their favorites with you. It can be a sensory adventure!

      2. Otto's in Burbank is a great source for all things Hungarian, too.
