There are times when dedication and passion to food is so apparant it’s almost tangible. This is what you pick up every time you walk into Giovannis in Green Point.
This amazing food shop and deli is always bustling and you never have to wait long for a friendly staff member to help you. The owners are always around, with more smiles, and more help. It’s simply a pleasure to shop there.
For me its like a mini trip to Europe, and I love wondering around checking all the beautiful products on offer, wishing I was a gazillionaire and could just pick up a bottle of Veuve or Dom on a whim, to wash down my Serrano ham and Gorgonzola with. Sigh!
Its essentially food retail nirvana.
The shop is very compact and products are arranged and merchandised neatly in categories. If you dig deep you will find some hidden treasures like Zwyer caviar @ R9950 for 125gms in the coolest nifty black ‘pearl’ packaging. The sturgeons that produce this caviar swim around in a pristine Uruguay habitat (yes this is in the Southern Hemisphere). They are farmed with words like: sustainability, traceability and responsibilty which we love when it comes to our food. You need to check out the website, mermaids and all. It’s so impressive, and the photography so stunning, you will be reaching for your wallet going …’hell its only R80 a gram’. Giovannis is the only retailer to stock this product.
Check out the Zwyer Caviar website, its insane.
You will find this alongside other lesser roe and delectable goodies at Giovannis.
