Everything you didn’t know you wanted to eat

If it weren’t for walking out of my way to photograph the rotunda architecture and windows of the Red Bull head office I mightn’t’ve noticed the large new-looking warehouse right beside it.

Luckily a large pink boulder of rock salt drew my eye to the doorway (and then beyond) to the delectable treasures hidden within:

Called “Salt Meats Cheese” this tasty nom-spiration is located beneath an imposing brick stack in Sydney’s newest foodie cornucopia, Alexandria – right next to popular new venue The Grounds.

The Italian theme is strong with this providore.

If you’ve been to Italy recently you’ll feel a pang of yearning even just seeing the mustachioed labels on the spring water, bottled in typical Roman coloured glass. If you haven’t yet traversed Italia a traipse through the warehouse is enough of an adventure to inspire you to expend less on takeaway – and instead save dough by hosting your own sumptuous latin dinner parties.

No matter your food “thing” from black truffle to buffalo cheese to cured flesh, the “Salt Meats Cheese” gourmet Aladdin’s Cave has it all:

If you don’t have the dinner party inclination yet, you’ll surely get the urge after a visit here. These guys will even help you fake it with pre-made desserts in champagne flutes:
