Time Out says
In Maria Granel – where everything is sold by the weight – there’s plenty to fill your pantry. There are over 240 products: olives, lupini beans, bread, beans, grains, dried fruit, tea infusions, honey, breakfast cereals, rice, sweets and other dry groceries. But why is it worth going there? Because – and we’re not counting with the Martim Moniz shops - it has one of the most exotic and complete sections of spices and condiments of the Iberian Peninsula, they guarantee. Madras curry (with mustard and pepper), aromatic mixes for pizzas, grills, salads and fish are some examples. There are also some things with strange names to discover: agastache (a digestive with anise flavour), gomashio (combination of sesame seeds with salt) and St. John's Wort (for a hepatic recovery - good for those hard post-party days). New ingredients that promise to break away the monotony in the kitchen and that are also sold in the online store.
