Inside Borough Market’s Floral Hall, Brindisa sells an assortment of high-quality Spanish food items every Tuesday through Saturday. The shop began as a tiny stall in 1988 and expanded to its current space in 2005, offering a variety of artisan cheeses, olive oils, Calasparra rice, Spanish almonds, conserved tuna, anchovies, chocolate, and turrón (Spanish nougat). The store also specializes in Serrano and Ibérico ham and even has a ham carving school that enables students to taste a variety of meats and wines while learning expert preparation techniques. Tapas Brindisa, the company’s celebrated restaurant, is located in the marketplace, as well.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
