Elmar’s Smallgoods is a 30-year-old German deli in Perth, Western Australia, founded by immigrants Elmar and Anette Dieren. Carnivores will be astounded by the selection here. Hot venison salami, buffalo chorizo, turkey liverwurst, goose pate, beech-smoked beef knackers, curry brats… and those are just the meats we recognize. For everything else (rookwurst, schinkenspeck, nuss schinken, weisswurst), you might need to bust out your German-English dictionary. To tie it all together, you’ll find gouda and emmental cheeses, whole-grain mustards, rye bread, and big jars of sauerkraut. No time to cook? The family sells German brats on the sidewalk outside its Highgate shop. A plain sausage is $3 AUD ($2.36 USD), sausage on a roll is $5.50 AUD ($4.32), and a sausage on a roll with the sauerkraut-and-onion works is $6.50 AUD ($5.10). The line is consistently five to ten people deep, so you know it’s gotta be good.
