Despaña Specialty Foods & Tapas Café in SoHo has everything you need to transport yourself to the land of flamenco and Gaudi. The store is part wine shop and part market, with a Cafe in the back.
You can find all types of sweets and snacks from all different regions in Spain. The tapas were the best part of it all! The pulpo (octopus) shown above was my favorite, tasty and soft. I washed it all down with a nice and cold caña (beer). I’m already plotting my return.
Without a doubt, one of the most scrumptious—yet subtle—cheesecakes ever created. Homemade with Afuega L’Pitu cow’s milk cheese, an artisan cheese similar in consistency to a firm cream cheese, with a tangy, aromatic flavor.
