Feel like shopping in another country?

Don't get me wrong, l love our local supermarket.
Your run of the mill type...rude check-out chicks and buy 12 get one free deals.

So if your feeling like you need a change with the food variety, then sink your teeth into these little great shopping spots around Melbourne and try something new.

A little Italian maybe...
Mediterranean Wholesalers in Sydney Rd Brunswick.
Amazing Italian oils, breads, cheese, wines and sweets. l could go on. Very reasonably priced and a great variety of everyday ingredients that you use - cheap pasta and canned goods.

A little Middle eastern perhaps....
Bas Foods in Brunswick also offer a wide variety of dried fruits, nuts and spices. Very inspiring to walk through and grab a can of something unusual. l purchased a huge jar of Tahini which keeps forever and is great to make home made hummus with. Yum!

Or something spicy and Asian influenced instead...
Laguna Oriental Supermarket is located at QV. Tucked away out the back this great little gem offers everything that is Asian from curries to satay. They have an excellent noodle range and also all those lovely sauces and toppings for homemade soups and stir fry.

Hope we have given you some ideas that
inspire you to travel the world without leaving the kitchen!

Ciao for now!
