Casa Vela

Deli in L'Eixample & Southern Valencia

Uncomplicated and likeable, this long-standing smallgoods shop has a bar and squeezes in a couple of tables at mealtimes. Sampler plates of things like lacón (pork front leg) are delicious, while heartier fare such as steaks and bean stews are also on hand. Wine is very reasonably priced.

Other branches have sprouted around town: this one has less space than some, but more atmosphere.
