Time Out Melbourne

Established in 1975 and located in the heart of Fitzroy's Spanish precinct, Casa Iberica lives up to its name as Melbourne's Home of Spanish, Portuguese and South American food. The bustling corner store is a one-stop shop for any Latin American cooking, and stocks essential ingredients such as masa (the cornflour required for making tortillas), dry salted cod (bacalhau), chorizos, Colombian Guava paste, Salvadoran plantain chips, paella pans, tortillas presses and all manner of fiery Mexican hot sauces. Lunchtime finds the deli counter shoulder-to-shoulder with people ordering handmade sandwiches with jamon and cheese. It's also home to Melbourne's best Portuguese custard tart, but get in early as they sell out fast!
