Dubai Spice Souk

A galaxy of flavours to spice up your life

Colourful is one description very apt for Dubai’s Spice Souk. Aromatic is another.

Brace yourself for a sensory sensation, as myriad flavours and recipes will greet you as you make your way through the traditional spice market in Dubai's heritage area.

Savour the atmosphere of the past as you are introduced to the mounds of aromatic herbs and spices spilling from large baskets at every turn. Some may be just a tad overwhelming, whereas others are light, airy and sweet.

Wander among many different stalls and chat to the vendors who will give you plenty of ideas on how you can use the various spices on offer. Not all are designed for cooking. A wide variety of fragrant teas from all over the world are on offer – you can learn all of this as you go.

There is also a great selection of nuts, oils and saffron available from the markets.

Spices are sold both by weight and in packets. However like other souks, if you’re buying in more bulk quantities, vendors expect you to haggle. Lots of Arabic spices are on offer, as well as those from the subcontinent. 

Whether you’re a cooking expert or looking to experiment a bit with your favourite recipes, you’ll discover many new tastes at Spice Souk.
