Fabulous New Store in Hydrostone Market - Liquid Gold Oils and Vinegars
No doubt I am not the only Halifax Foodie who discovered this wonderful new shop which opened last week in the Hydrostone Market. Numerous olive oils and balsamic vinegars available, you can sample the oils and vinegars - taste some of the infused flavours available - check out the blood orange infused olive oil - amazing! This shop is amazing both in what is offered and visually as well. The shop keepers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Check this place out as soon as possible and welcome this wonderful venue to Halifax!
Hey Chilbeanpaste, have you checked out this place? It is an absolute must in your quest for food gems in this city. Would love to read everyone's input on this shop. I was in again on Sunday, the joint was jumpin - great to see such success. The place had an excellent write up in Herald recently.
Oooooh, cannot *wait* to go here! (I'm sorry, this post has nothing constructive to say really; I just had to vent my excitement to have a place like this in Halifax =o) Do you have any recommendations that you thought were particularly great when you tasted the products? Such a great idea; I find it hard to find great olive oil so can't wait to try this place out! Thanks!
Hope you checked this place out since you posted. One of my favourite olive oils sold in the store is Koroneiki from Greece. Full bodied, grassy, thick rich with a nice peppery after bite. Try the blood orange infused olive oil or the Tuscan Herb. Try the fig infused balsamic vinegar - hell try them all as they are excellent on their own or mixed with the various olive oils, etc. I believe their olive oils change with the pressing season of the different countries represented. The shop owners passion for their products shine threw so let them take you on a tour, taste and enjoy!
I too, was blown away to find such a gourmet shop in Halifax!
