This might well give Orange County cooks pause: “We’ve had a wonderful 5-1/2 years in Corona del Mar,” says Savory Spice Shop owner Laura Shute, when asked about the June 19 closing of her Newport Beach location.
But, no worries! Shute’s merely consolidating her stores, and little-but-mighty sister Savory Spice Stop in Costa Mesa’s The OC Mix will carry on as usual for all your herb, spice, and seasoning needs. So, no break in the spice supply chain. I’m as glad as anyone else, since I’m very partial to Savory Spice’s Santa Maria-style seasoning for grilled tri-tip—so good in my Viet-Central Coast mashup banh mi.
