Two shops down from Levinski main street, on Nachalat Binyamin, you’ll find the little spice kingdom of Havashus. The spices, tea mixtures, legumes, dried fruits, nuts, minerals and crystals are carefully collected from across the globe. Everything is meticulously hand picked - you won’t find a mediocre spice, nut or dried fruit. While chefs and foodies drop by to find unique spices, it’s not uncommon to find a 90 year old grandma coming to look for leafs and minerals unique to exorcism or blessing rituals she’s about to perform on her grandchild or old men looking for smelling tobacco - another commodity Havashush is known hold.
Make sure to try the sugar-free organic dried fruit (the apricots from Uzbekistan are especially delicious), the nuts and almonds are excellent as well and if you’re staying in an apartment and feel like cooking - the legumes are some of the best you can find.
