The deli equivalent of stopping to smell the roses
Possibly one of my favourite delis, Blackwattle Deli is what draws me to Sydney's famed fish markets time and time again. Jam packed with premium ingredients, most of the space is given over to an extensive cheese and cured meat selection. Try the Holy Goat, La Luna cheese. It is out of this world.

Squeezed against the back wall, countless bottles of interesting olive oils, balsamic vinegars and all manner of chutneys line roof-high shelves. On the other side of the store, spilling out into the crowded walkway of the fish market itself, teetering piles of fancy chocolates speckled with chilli, pastel coloured Persian fairy floss and bite-sized pistachio nougat tempt you to you enter.

An onsite cafe gives me the opportunity to sit for a moment and take in the smells and sights of the fish market, crowded as always with locals and tourists alike. I sip my cappuccino while contemplating which particular temptation to give into on this visit. In the end, I choose a box of fresh Turkish Delight, a rose and pistachio variety, all smothered in a snow storm of icing sugar, which reminds me of a long ago trip to a market in Marmaris, Turkey.
