One of my favourite food shops in Perth is The Boatshed in Cottesloe.
It is offensively expensive but it makes you feel good just looking at all the lovely food and they ALWAYS open up a new aisle if there is more than one person waiting.
I’m not that keen on the butchers and bakery sections but the main hall – fantastic.
The best day to go is Saturday, mid-morning. I call it Free Sample Saturday.
Last Saturday I was given a full cup of black coffee – creamy and lovely just as I like it – and the beans apparently come from sustainable farms. Whatever.
Then wandered inside, had a slice of pineapple, a couple of scoops of my favourite tomato salsa – it’s so good – with a couple of Surf Chips, wandered over to the deli counter and tried some veal sausages – very nice – and then a sample of cheese. Yummy yum yum. And then I confess to a tasting of that yummy almond and honey slice.
Sure I spent $70 on a few green apples and a pint of milk. But it was worth it.
