A middle eastern shop in Melbourne for me is a great way to visit back home.
I’d love to know about more shops to visit around in Melbourne.
Leave me your comments!
Baladi on Brady road (Dandenong North)
Baladi is a great small shop with almost everything I need, as they serve a wide variety of middle eastern groceries. Every visit to Baladi is like visiting a shop in my home town; the atmosphere is friendly, warm, and middle eastern.
Also they always have small new surprises reminding me on childhood and home (like seasonal raw green almonds, or even a floor mop I’m used to use from home 🙂
They also serve prepared food, like Falafel, Manakish, and Pastries, including catering for events if needed.
Oasis bakery is well known for the residents of Caulfield. They have a fully stocked mini-market with middle eastern groceries; also they have a fine restaurants of middle eastern dishes, and for the enthusiastic they also provide cooking workshops!
I like their restaurants and recommend it to friends, especially that their meals are clearly presented and you can easily order by pointing at a meal without knowing it’s name 🙂
Follow the link, visit the place, and enjoy.
