    Apart from the main supermarkets, is there anywhere in Dumaguete that sells a good range of spices. There are certain spices that I can't find anywhere. I know I can probably buy them online but I'm hoping that won't be necessary.

    Specifically I'm looking to buy any of the following: cardamoms, black onion seeds, mustard seeds, garam masala, coriander seeds and fenugreek.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what is Yan Yan? Is it a shop?

    I could find bags of specialty spices at Yan Yan, as mentioned in the other posts.

    You can find a lot of good stuff in Yan Yan you can't find in other places in Dumaguete, special if you like to bake, good butter Danish and French, species and seeds, a huge selection of flavors, among a lot of other stuff, for sure a visit worth

    Another two forum friends after my own little heart. Mark, I salute you, an acolyte of the proper curry, and Jack, as ever the helpful resource. Target sighted: Yan Yan.

    Thank you sir.

    I actually went to Yan Yan this morning. It was one in, one out, and there were a lot of people waiting outside. Patience is not one of my strong points, so I decided to return another day.

    Once I visit I'll report back here with my findings. I'm hoping the store isn't entirely about baking, as that's how it appears from the outside.
