This unassuming roadside shed gives little clue to the virtual emporium of continental groceries and specialty deli that lies within.
Herein is the place to stock up on northern European staples - pickled vegetables including a generous range of sauerkraut, sauces, cheese, canned fish and dumpling mixes. From the Mediterranean there’s a decent array of pastas, spices, sauces, dried herbs, coffee and marinated vegetables.
Worth a look is the rustic deli room out back through the plastic curtain – as well as giant aged Parmesan wheels of around 40-50kg and olives to-die-for they stock a fantastic range of cured and smoked meats with Jamaican Rum salami (Bavarian), leberkase, smoked sausages, black pudding, paper thin Serrano Jamon, prosciutto, soppressa, coppa and lombo but a few of the offerings.
On Thursdays it’s Market Day with stalls of greatly discounted fruit & veges out front to complement the fresh stuff inside.
