One of the best things about Melbourne — if not the best thing — is its multiculturalism. Not only do we get to interact with people from a huge variety of cultural backgrounds, but we also get to eat their food.
The Mediterranean Wholesalers in Brunswick is heaven to lovers of Italian cuisine. This place stocks pretty much everything you could wish for, and much of it can be bought in bulk.
Even if I don’t feel like buying anything, I love wandering through this place just to smell the delicious food and hear the tiny nonnas with their perfectly coiffed hairdos chat away in Italian. Coming here is like going on a miniature holiday.
Food plus culture plus travel. To me, that equals big love.
