For those passionate about food and wine
"Oooh yum" was, I believe, my first utterance on entering Wursthaus, a delicatessen/butcher/charcuterie/cheese shop/bottle shop.
The smell of warming goodies was very hungry-making. They've got ready-made meals, sandwiches and cakes (the apple honey cake and Belgian flourless chocolate looked particularly good), smallgoods, meats, pantry items, chocolates, wines, cheese, fresh Pigeonhole bakery breads…I could go on!
If you have access to a kitchen whilst in Hobart, this would be the place to stock up on home-away-from-home foodie comforts with a local twist. We sufficed with house-made chicken and leek pies, warmed and eaten in the park nearby: a perfect belly-warmer for the wintry day that it was!
You can find Wursthaus Kitchen at 1 Montpelier Retreat, Battery Point or online at www.wursthaus.com.au.
