The Filling Station is a unique shop located in Chelsea Market in Manhattan. They specialize in all natural oils, vinegars and rare salts.
I love this place. Does it sound like a dumb recommendation? Well, if you think so - I doubt you've ever tasted their Apricot Balsamic Vinegar (sidenote: IT'S NUTS! so good.) because you wouldn't think this is a dumb post if you've tasted it.
I love olive oil, I try to use it as much as possible since it's the most supreme oil. (Canola can EAT IT.) And vinegar?! Oh man, I would carry vinegar all OVER the place if that weren't an inhuman-like quality. Stuff tastes amazing on almost everything. And there are tons of amazing oils/vinegars I've yet to try that sound amazing, such as:
- Blood Orange Olive Oil
- Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
- Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar
- Espresso Balsamic Vinegar
- Peach Balsamic Vinegar
- Merlot Salt (what! I know!)
Anyway, if any of this has made your eyes bulge out of your face, go visit this store when you're in New York. Just a fantastic place to be.
