Under a rusted awning that reads “Marrickville continental deli, primo small goods” you’ll find Lamia Super Deli. It’s a slip of a shop that’ll make you nostalgic for your gap year bombing around the Greek islands because it’s stocked to the rafters with authentic Greek goods. Get frozen phyllo, bricks of saganaki, barley rusks, Greek olives and jams, ready-to-bake kihi and metsovo pies, Easter candles and chocolates and even briki coffee pots. Order a platter of charcuterie for your next party, get lunch sorted off the sandwich menu, or grab a loaf of fresh bread, seasonal goods (like Panettone at Christmas) and even laundry detergent in one go. It all happens with a smile from friendly, long-time locals and under the watchful gaze of light-haloed patron saints and old snapshots of the owner hanging high on the crowded wall behind the counter. Ask if it’s all Greek to you – a lot of it literally is.
