Anthony The Spice Maker is a hipster-looking spice shop tucked away in Chinatown Complex wet market. This spice-making family business was started by one Anthony Leow in 1986. Leow’s wife was sent to Little India to learn how to mix spices and make spice paste back then because he did not know much about spices. They have been in business ever since with their secret blend of spices.
