Helmed by a duo of Greek sisters, the Chios-originated mastihashop stocks a thoughtfully sourced assortment of pastas, sauces, spreads, and body-care products. Several of mastihashop's products incorporate mastiha, a Greek tree-derived sap that has been found to have therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Sip Mastiha and Vanilla Salep, a creamy beverage crafted from wild orchid root ($5.50) or snack on fluffy lemon cookies flavored with the tart citrus harvested from the Greek island of Chios ($9). Shoppers can also find specialty oils, gift baskets, fair-trade body products, and all-natural cosmetics.
Mastihashop has received tons of press, including being named one of the Best Independent Shops for Global Gear in NYC by Time Out New York. It was also featured in Edible Manhattan. Three Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, and four Citysearchers give it five stars:
- Talk about specializing: Not only does this mod apothecary solely carry goods from the Greek isle of Chios, it deals primarily in those spiked with the rare tree resin mastiha. – Cristina Velocci, Time Out New York
- With a unique mix of cosmopolitan comestibles and luxe body-care products, the shop pays homage to mastiha’s do-all disposition. – Mindy Fox, Edible Manhattan
- One of kind. There is really nothing like this shop. The help is great and they have very unique foods. – angenyc, Citysearch
