It was bound to happen given San Juan del Sur’s evolution from sleeping fishing village to desirable destination. But every time I walk into Mi Bodeguita Delicatessen I’m thankful that it’s here.
Quick and easy comfort food, imported meats and cheese with a Mediterranean bias and a collection of edible exotica. There’s room in this short life for all of it.
Craving manchego cheese direct from La Mancha or a few slices of proscuito crudo? This is the place to visit. Love gourmet sausages, chorizo, pate, olives? Mi Bodeguita has you covered. And if you want to pack the perfect picnic, this tiny deli has enough to hit your palate’s sweet spots.
It can be hard to find. As you head past the Uno gas station and into town look for the hanging wooden sign on your right proclaiming “Spanish Products, Ham, Salami, Sausages. NY Steaks, Cheeses” and you’ll know you’ve found the right place.
Almost directly opposite you’ll find Pan de Vida, San Juan del Sur’s finest brick-oven bakery. Head there afterwards to pair some freshly baked bread with your purchases.
My Bodeguita is a foodie’s delight and yet another sign that San Juan del Sur is coming of age as one of Nicaragua’s most important lifestyle destinations.
