Blax deli corner of Victoria and Durham. While you are there go to the cheese shop over the road.

Ballantynes carry a few deli items (olives, cheeses etc).

Cashmere butchery have deli stuff too.

Mediterranean Warehouse (have the best pizza in town while you are there) Tuam St. Italian stuff.

The deli across from work is quite good too (New York deli Victoria Street)

All of it good, none of it cheap.

Ooo... I think you'll find Blax is just around the corner of Montreal and Salisbury: http://maps.google.co.nz/maps?f=q&sourc ... 52908,,0,5

Yep, it's pretty pricy though. The cheese shop is fantastic. Sadly it's closed mondays or I'd go there right now.

I just love the naive enquiry !!

Not to sound all offended or anything (I'm a north islander by birth and upbringing) but Chch ain't Ekatahuna !! There are bloody deli's everywhere - every second coffeeshop has one next door, pretty much every supermarket has a 'deli' (if you are feeding a crowd might be your best bet) As to which one of the "real delis" is best - those posters above have the best wraps I'm sure. Bon Appetite :p

ha! Naive? maybe...... But not when it comes to Deli's!
Supermarket Deli's come on, who's the chump? :p When cooking for internationals sometimes quality actually precedes price.

anyone been to Rarefare? from a quick google search they came up, seem quite authentic as far as local produce is concerned.

thanks for the info on the others, i will check them out.

I totally expected that response - good to see that food snobbery is alive and well on vorb :p A good match for the bike brand snobbery :p Am salivating at the thought of what you might be concocting bJ - as I said - Bon Appetite :)
