Camisa, Soho – Delicious delicatessen!

We are lucky to have an amazing canteen at the Cedar offices, but the other day I fancied a walk in the sun, and Claire introduced me to Camisa – an Italian delicatessen on Old Compton Street in Soho (CLICK HERE to visit their website – you can even order from the online deli). Eight years ago (blimey, can’t believe it was quite that long ago) I spent three weeks travelling round Italy and can still remember an amazing mozzarella sandwich I had on Capri island. The sandwich I had from Il Camisa today, happily took me back to that moment! Mozzerella, salami, roasted cherry tomatoes, olive oil and basil in a ciabatta roll all for £3.

The shop is owned by real Italians, selling real Italian goods alongside fresh produce. I am always drawn to anything ‘fresh’ and snapped up some tortellini stuffed with parma ham and a homemade tomato and basil sauce. 100 grams of the tortellini was £1 and the sauce was £1. This amount is perfect for a meal for one (and what a bargain) and was delicioso! Worth the wait – expect a queue in rush hour, but it’s a great sign it’s worth the wait.
