Favourite things to buy at the Italian Centre EDM
I don't visit very often because of location, but I'll be stopping by on Wednesday night. I was just trying to make a list of what I need so as to avoid coming out with $200 worth of stuff, but it kept getting longer and longer.
Does this happen to you? What are your favourite things to pick up when you go?
Totally hear you - I always end up overspending at the Italian Centre.
Currently on our regular IC list:
- spicy calabrese
- fresh buffalo mozzarella
- nocellara olives
- cans of san marzano tomatoes
Recently tried the Iberico ham. Was very tasty but super expensive. I think 200g cost me approx $18.
I totally agree...I always walk out of that place with way more than I need!!
- Breads/Buns....so many fresh and delicious ones to choose from!
- Roma Tomatoes....they always look so good there!
- Great Mistake Olives
- Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella
- Salami (usually a few different kinds)
- Always a Portugese Tart for the drive home :)
bella and picantelli olives
manchego and piave cheeses
san marzano tomatoes
modena balsamic vinegar
fresh fungi (chantarelles, shitaake, etc)
Just realized I didn't add mine...
Fresh mozzarella (and really, any kind of italian cheese)
Pancetta and prosciutto
The $6 sandwich (I think it's gone up in price now, but this is just what my friends have always called it)
I like to ogle the different kinds of oils, vinegars, spreads, but usually refrain from buying them - I have a pretty extensive variety already.
The sandwiches at the south side Italian Centre are HUGE! Most normal people would get full after eating half. Compared to any competitor like Subway or Quizno's, they're way better in quality, a larger portion, and a cheaper price. I can't believe these sandwiches used to be bigger in the past...
