Back from a European jaunt and missing the Continent's deli delights? Look no further than Xarcuteria. The Spanish deli in Claremont Court calls itself ‘reminiscent of a little delicatessen in the heart of Barcelona’, and dishes up some of the finest hand-made chorizo, jamón and cheese in town. Xarcuteria also prepares enormous pans of paella for pre-order catering. Gather up some grub for a tasty party plate, or get your hands on a takeaway roll, tortilla or caramelised leek and parmesan tart for lunch. Don’t forget to pick up a Portuguese custard tart for the road.
