The Verdict

La Central is Melbourne’s first Spanish deli-meets-bodega at South Melbourne Market. Conceived by Spanish-born Alberto Andres and Rufino Ramos, the guys were inspired by the vibrant markets of Barcelona and Madrid for this opening.

These guys specialise in delicious Spanish produce, beer and wine, and have a vast selection of local produce, made from a range of traditional and contemporary Spanish methods - think cured meats and chorizo. Enough said.

La Central invites you to stop by for a drink or pick up a bottle from the wine bar to take home. Market goers can also sit in and sample a selection of tapas, as well as Jamon Iberico, Spanish cheese, olives straight from the deli and their famous anchovies.

This modest location resembles your favourite family-owned corner store while offering a twist on traditional Spanish classics. “We both love food and wine, but by far the best thing about hospitality is sharing in people’s moments of celebration and time with family and friends,” says Rufino.

Make sure to drop by and say hello on your next South Melbourne Market grocery run. Your tastebuds will thank you later.
