Delicias de Portugal
Super favourite amongst locals and professionals in the area. Great selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas, wines, meat and cheese, and take away lunch. Usually the queue starts on the street outside of the shop.

A great after work boozer. Some of its original features have been retained throughout the years, which give it an authentic pub feel.
