The Spice of Life is a small halal shop on Moore St, but like most halal shops they’ve managed to squeeze it chock full of food and it has a huge selection of ethnic ingredients.
There’s a great choice of spices in bags, sauces, condiments and canned goods such as pulses; all at very low prices. They also sell fresh fruit and veg and halal meat. Spice of Life would be a great place to stock up on store cupboard staples. I bought some chilli sauce and some sambar rice, which I’ve never tried before.
A 2kg bag of Brown Basmati Rice for €6.99 (so around €3.50 a kilo). My local shop charges €2.95 for a small 500g bag, so this is a really good price. Brown basmati is great; tastier and lighter than standard brown rice, and healtheir than plain white.
