Eatin' Out - Despaña

408 Broome Street, just past Centre
Despaña, a Queens-based wholesale importer of Spanish foods, recently opened a retail store on the outskirts of far eastern Soho. While providing customers with such Spanish delicacies as tinned olives, honeys, olive oils and vinegars, there's also a sandwich counter at the back of store turning out yummy bocadillos (i.e. small sandwiches) made of cured Spanish meats and cheeses served on Sullivan Street ciabatta bread.

Great for lunch, lots of samples are available throughout the store, and the personable staff is more than willing to assist you as you taste various manchegos and chorizos. Go for the pork loin, manchego and membrillo (quince) sandwich.
