£20 to spend at B13 8DD? Yes, it's another shopping "challenge". This time though, I had no idea what the shop was.
One Thursday, after a morning session of Music Shakers in King's Heath, we took a stroll over to Moseley so that I could find out what was at B13 8DD.
What I found when we arrived there was an amazing looking shop called Nima Delicatessen. It's a proper old school grocery store that stocks the most amazing products. Some are familiar while most were brands or varieties of familiar brands that I'd never seen before. While it calls itself a delicatessen, the fresh produce selection was limited, but looked amazing, none the less.
I spent most of my time excitedly browsing the store picking things up to marvel at them or calling to K to come and have a look. As a result, I neglected to take any pictures of the inside, so if you want to know what it's like, you'll just have to go and see for yourself.
I managed to buy several things with my gift but could have spent an absolute fortune in there. I'll definitely be returning. I ended up buying some orecchiette pasta, some marinaded artichokes, some Oolong tea, some amazing ginger cake made with stem ginger and rye flour, some Patum Peperium (The Gentleman's Relish) and a selection of fresh canoli.
Unfortunately, I couldn't take a picture of the shop keeper's feet for the 40 feet project, so I included K's feet in the shot instead:
Also, on the way back, we stopped off at Damascena, an amazing coffee house, for Turkish coffee and cakes. Yum!
