Encasa Deli, Sydney

Encasa Deli is opened by the owners of Encasa Restaurant on Pitt Street. It can can be found on Bathurst Street, selling Spanish groceries, freshly made sandwiches to eat in or for those workers on the run.

Upon entering, you can see a cabinet displaying all sorts of deli goodness such as salami, prosciutto, wheels of cheese and large terracotta dishes full of plump olives. A list of different types of bocadillos, long portion of baguette sliced in half and filled with Spanish chorizo sausage, cold cuts, tuna or Serrano ham, is written on the blackboard which is hung on the wall.

I was catching up with M and she suggested this place. We couldn’t decide what we wanted as everything sounded wonderful, however, the lady told us that the chorizo was one of their best sellers.

I took her advice and opt for the chorizo ($10.50), grilled Spanish sausage, roast capsicum, Spanish onion and aioli. Made to order on fresh bread which are all supplied by Brasserie Bread. They were crusty on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside.

The grilled Spanish sausage was excellent; the roast capsicum a wonderful complement and I loved loved the aioli!

M had the Argentino ($10), South American sausage and chimichurri. I didn’t have any of this, but she did enjoy it.

I know how much ‘The Mother’ loves delis so told him about it and he has gone twice in a week! First time, he had the mortadella sandwich and really enjoyed it, and he had the Boquerones, white anchovies, comfit piquillo peppers, roast garlic aioli and loved it! No photos unfortunately, he just told me it was ‘really good’.

There’s never a shortage of food in the CBD but this is definitely a great addition! Unfortunately we didn’t try and olives, but I did manage to buy salami for home which ‘The Mother’ loved. No doubt we will be back to try their other bocadillos, I am definitely keen to try Canario – roast pork leg, queso fresco, roast capsicum mojo and tomato.

Had a quick look at the grocery section, tins of sardines, marinated octopus are available, as well as kitchen supplies like terracotta dishes and tins of tomatoes and pickled jalapenos. Definitely worth coming back for!

    I can never resist the tortilla – it comes with an aioli that is pungent with garlic! The boquerones is also pretty delish too!

    I’m rarely in the city these days but I’ve heard so many good things about this place! And seriously, what’s not to love about chorizo and aioli on good bread?

    Happy Chinese New Year, by the way =)
