Located on Bathurst Street (close to Castlereagh) is Encasa Deli - a tiny Spanish deli with a large array of salamis and a mouth watering selection of baguettes.

The dining area is tiny and very casual - bar stools for chairs and large barrels for tables (or the benches along the back wall and window).

The shop area is divided into two sections; the aforementioned dining area and a packaged produce store.

The menu is up on the blackboard and orders are placed at the counter.

The baguettes (known as bocadillos), which arrive are on a metal plate, are toasty, warm and fresh. Priced at around $10 each, they're good value for what you get and you generally leave satisfied.

The bread is lovely - crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside (true perfection).

My dining companion ordered the 'Portugues' - a spiced grilled chicken, tomato, rocket and herb aioli bocadillo. There were oohing and ahing sounds to follow.

The 'Tortilla' is another favourite - a bocadillo with Spanish omelette and roasted peppers.

I've visited Encasa Deli twice now, and have to admit I ordered the same baguette both times - a tomato rubbed bocadillo with fresh prosciutto.

To wash down your bocadillos, there's a decent selection of fresh juices and other standard beverages.

Do try out Encasa Deli, but if it's nice weather, take your bocadillo out to the park and enjoy the sunshine as the wait for a table or bench spot can be tedious.
