Default Spanish (Spain) grocery stores in Boston?

Are there any Spanish (Spain) grocery stores in Boston?

Thanks.

None that I can think of, but you can find certain Spanish products in speciaity markets. Formaggio Cheese in Cambridge (they also have a smaller store in the South End) carries Spanish meats, cheeses, olive oil and spices, for example.

Thanks for the info. I didn't really think there would be, but thought it would be worth asking. We'll definitely check out Formaggio when we come. I also heard about Las Ventas deli that stocks Spanish foods.

There are some good Spanish restaurants here (my favorites are Toro and Estragon in the South End, with Dali and Tapeo being a distant third and fourth) so hopefully you will be able to get a fix of home cooking when you need it.

Depending on what you need, some British shops might be able to help you with things. A lot of Spanish stuff is Spanish-oriented, but a lot of the things that you consider things from home are more Euro-wide, so English shops might help. Just a thought. :-)

That's great to have some restaurant suggestions. We'll definitely give them a try. Thanks. As for the English shops, I'll do a google search for some, but is there a particular one you know of that's good?

Spanish, don't think so. Latino yes, and in some suburbs too. Al Capone's in Union Square Somerville is Spanish speaking and has many European foods hard to find here. Also home made pasta.

Default Las Ventas at 700 Harrison

There is a little specialty shop in the South End at 700 Harrison Ave owned by a Spaniard called "Las Ventas". They import cheeses, chocolates, meats, et al... lots of nice treats from Spain and they also make authentic Spanish deli sandwiches.

Next door is Estragon -- a tapas restaurant that has never disappointed. The Spanish meat dishes are cooked and seasoned to near perfection and among the finest I've ever had, particularly the "cowboy steak" (English translation). I've been to Spain and it's probably the cheapest way to experience it in Boston w/o leaving. I'm Scotch-English so I can be objective
