Yuan Heng Spice Co.

While the summer is all about fresh herbs, I am now getting excited about the spices of fall. And Yuan Heng Spice Co. is the perfect place to do that.

It’s somewhat rare in Hong Kong that you actually find a screaming deal…

So I’m pretty excited about what I can do with all of these delicious and super cheap spices. I’m thinking about cider and mulled wine sachets? Any other great ideas for me?

Have you ever seen such large cinnamon?! It could flavor a GIANT bowl of cider. And I mean giant!!

The shop wholesales to many restaurants in town, but will also sell to individuals. I got a screaming deal on some saffron.

Here they are bagging up fried garlic… maybe this is where Under Bridge Spicy Crab gets all the garlic they bury their crab in?

And I love that they still use an old school abacus… or at least have it out for show!

The shop is right by Pantry Magic. Yuan Heng Spice Co. G/F Tung St., Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

  1. How awesome – you’re lucky! Saffron?! Yum!
    Wine and cider sachets are an awesome idea. There are also those Christmas spice cakes that are supposed to sit for a year or longer… you could make several years’ worth in advance! ;)

    Did they have vanilla beans? You could make homemade vanilla with vodka and beans.

  3. oh how neat! You could put the big cinnamon sticks in a vase around Christmas time.
    I blogged one time about putting saffron in with brown butter to eat over noodles. It’s just so terribly expensive here!
