Inside you will find a range of cured meats which can't be rivalled and all are carefully selected from all over the world by the Pennisi family. You will find salami, speck, prosciutto and bratwurst among many other products at such small prices, it's almost like buying wholesale. We bought a variety of olives from the deli which were firm and flavourful unlike so many you buy in the supermarket today.
We were on a mission to find talleggio, a delicious Italian cheese for a quiche we were making. The owner, a lovely Italian lady, came over to help us choose the perfect cheese from the cold cabinet and we gawked at the range of incredible cheese and the tiny price tags attached. While they didn't have talleggio, they were able to find multiple alternatives and promised they would have the cheese we were after in stock soon. It was truly excellent service.
There are cans of gherkins in a varying array of styles and sizes alongside bags of pasta ranging from mushroom flavoured to squid ink. The spice wall was my absolute favourite find as I often loathe to spend money in the supermarket for such a small amount of spice or herbs. These were huge bags of paprika, bay leaves, coriander seeds and much much more for less than $5 a bag which is fantastic value.
As we were leaving the shop, another customer mentioned that this was her favourite place to shop and that she can often get almost all her food shopping done here. I could see how this would be the case and you could be eating beautiful international feasts weekly without the huge price tag many of these special foods usually have.
All in all, this was an amazing find for us and I will definitely be back when we need cheese, cured meat or are hosting a nationality-themed party as there was so much choice for a little price!
