This Spanish Deli, just off Bay View Terrace (behind Dome) is run by celebrated WA chef David Coomer (of Star Anise, Pata Negra, and Print Hall). We found it a little hard to find. We must have walked around Claremont in a circle 2 or 3 times, only to find we were parked just 20 meters away!! Oh well, it was a beautiful morning for a wander…
Xarcuteria offers a wide-range of meats, terrines, olives, pates, cheeses (Spanish and French) and a multitude of imported tinned and bottled food from Spain; Anchovies, oils and the like. Xarcuteria has a fridge-full of cured meats. There’s chorizo, jamon, salami, morcilla (blood sausage), and fuet (Catalan sausage). The staff are more than happy for you to taste before buying.
Xarcuteria are quite renowned for their paella, we’d like to give that a try. in the future. We were there for their famous “Pork Belly Roll” ($12). A freshly baked sourdough roll, pork belly, coleslaw & romesco. Bliss!! Oh, Romesco is a nut and red pepper-based sauce from Catalonia, Spain.
We then drove to the Cottesloe foreshore, finding the perfect picnic spot to enjoy our tasty lunch, whilst enjoying the warm winter sun. The rolls did not disappoint. They were super tasty with porky, nutty flavours. The crunch of the crusty bread, crisp slaw and a little crackle on the pork belly was bliss! With full tummies we had a stroll along Marine Parade in the sunshine. That was one of those simple “life is good moments”.
