While Olinda Main Street presents a welcoming facade, it's not until you venture behind the restaurants and shops that you find some of the hidden treasures this location has to offer.
One store in particular gave me a real surprise. Named Chilli Obsession, this store offers gourmet chilli, mustards, as well as souvenirs and a growing collection of antiques. The real attraction in my opinion is the sample selection. All of the spreads are playfully named, and range from very mild to extremely hot (I'm not kidding – as a fan of Indian spices I still felt the fire from some of the chilli flavours!).
