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:
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:
Even if you’re not the gourmet snack type there are many imported curiosities to catch a creative eye.
Be it radiant rainbow striped pasta (which apparently stays this bright even after boiling):
Escargot in cans and adjacent sanitary looking shells:
Heritage organic blue corn chips (would make very funky looking nachos):
Sexy retro bottled Chinotto:
5kg Nutella jars large enough for a child to bathe in – don’t let the perspective fool you, the flanking pinatas are huge:
Square slabs of Himalayan rock salt:
Vegan gluten free raw organic chocolate in unimagined flavour combos:
Even the vinaigrettes somehow seem fun. Like a shelf full of tickle me Elmo’s just waiting to be squeezed & set off, i just wanted to shake all of these:
Pretty excited to be heading back again today – I have a menu/plan of attack this time!
