Ayoub's Dried Fruit and Mixed Nuts

love the chandelier in Ayoub's
If you love nuts and dried fruit, you'll have to check this place out.  Ayoub's first of all is beautiful. It's like walking into another world.  The white shelves, silver urns filled with fragrant spiced nuts and the huge candelier hanging in the centre of the room make for an impressive first impression.

I was overwhelmed by the selection and wandered from urn to urn trying to decide whether I should go spicy and daring or conservative and healthy.  In the end I chose a somewhat healthy mix for munching on during work.
unsalted unadulterated mixed nuts and fruit: goji, cranberry, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds

The kids spotted candied strawberries that looked like jewels piled into the urn and insisted on buying some.   They said it was delicious and would want to come back to buy more.
spices line the shelves
The premises were kept spotlessly clean and the urns of nuts and dried fruit had sliding dome sneeze/dust guards.  I like to choose my nuts by sniffing them; so I can detect staleness or spice level.  Seems to work for me.

Prices are in grams and were clearly labelled on cards.  I was very impressed with the display of goodies and would definitely come back again.
