Kumar Jawa opened his first India Sweets and Spices market on Venice Boulevard in Culver City back in 1984. With several more in operation in the Southern California area today, it remains family owned, and Kumar has made it his personal goal to give customers what they want in Indian imports, as well as European imports. They offer Indian grocery, spices, sweets, snacks, teas, henna, incense and so much more. The adjoined restaurant is 100% vegetarian/vegan and has many gluten-free options. Some of the restaurant fan favorites include masala dosa, samosas, mango lassi, chai teas and of course, the curry of the day. Plus, grab some sweet and snacks to go, not to mention a trip to the spice isle – it’s more than you bargained for in the best way possible.
