Mega Continental Deli's shop front in West End

Step through the old warehouse door any time of day to find a lively scene straight out of Greece: blaring bazouki music, elderly black clad women scooping fresh olives out of giant tins, religious icons doted around the deli and shelves crammed with every Greek (and some Lebanese and Turkish) cooking item under the sun.

Here’s the place to go for all types of flour (including organic, spelt and fine textured) and olive oil, all of which are sold in bulk, as well as a great variety of beans, maize, polenta and barley flour.

Whole shelves are devoted to Greek teas and coffee galore, canned dolmades, tahini, Greek jams, marinated vegetables, pickles, dates and chick peas, pastas, rice, Turkish delights, Greek biscuits and a huge range of herbs and spices including sage, mountain tea, vine leaves, Lebanese mixed spice and oregano.

Mega Continental is also olive central with the aforementioned tins to self-serve (and sample) from - kalamata, green, pited, black, dried and Golden Greek - as well as green peppers.
