I'm moving to BA at the end of the month. What spices are impossible to find easily in BA? Also, are some spices in BA super cheap, and I should not bring them?
Will I be hassled at customs for having spices in my luggage?
Thanks for all your help.

more exotic things are sometimes difficult, most argentines don't use a lot of spices and flavors. garlic and onion powder i found challenging before but eventually with some searching i found it.

NAVE is a great source but things are out of stock sometimes

El Gato Negro on Corrientes has a huge selection of spices. I found Zatar there.

I just fished out the garlic and onion powder from my give-away pile...never would have considered that hard to find! Thanks...it's just the info I'm looking for.

After years of trying to find just plain salt that I am happy with, I brought back regular just plain salt from the USA and I am a happy camper. Who knew something so simple would be on my list, as it is quite heavy and I felt a bit foolish but not any more.
