Specialty Store: Vom Fass

I was taken to a new place full of culinary goodness on 1-27. The place is called Vom Fass, which roughly translates to "from the barrel". As the name suggests the store originates in Germany and specializes in selling specialty oils, vinegars, liquors, scotch, pretty much anything aged that you can drink or cook with.

I purchased 2 types of oils (Thistle and Madonia Olive oil) I purchased 2 balsamic vinegars as well (an Apple blend and a Lemon and Ginger blend). You get to go around the whole room and try all the oils and vinegars and the Scotch (but the employee serves you)! It was a lot of fun and I could see myself buying lots at this store! Everything was highly tasty!

So that is what that place is all about. On my bus ride home at night I would get a glimpse into the windows and was trying to figure out what was going on. The lettering on the sign and the style of the graphics made me first thing it was a bait shop or something but all the casks confused me when they started getting more of their decor together. That is a really neat idea.
