This is Ahmed. After the factory tour and lunch, he took us on the underground spice tour of Khan El-Khalili. This spice shop is actually underneath a large mosque and has probably been around for hundreds of years.
We bought some spices that are apparently (literally) 100 times more expensive in the U.S. I paid the same price for 100 grams of one spice that I would for one gram in the U.S.
Vanilla Steak? Blue Pepper?
