Walking along Paris Marais rue François Miron makes you travel through the past, but it also can be a spicy and tasty journey : you just have to stop at #30 at Izraël shop. It’s my favorite shop in the neighborhood.
The medieval house is just across the street.
Izraël‘s colorful shop also make you journey throughout the world’s savors and through (a less ancient) history : the window on the “wine and liquor” side is completely filled with old product boxes that take us at least 50 years back.
Do come in : You’ll find here any exotic rare spices or liquor, all kinds of crystallized or dried fruits. It’s a feast for the eyes. But unfortunately, I can’t make you smell the delicious fragrance that you breathe the moment you walk in, and makes you want to taste everything. So, you just have to visit the place for real.
