ONE OF LONDON’S BEST TAPAS BARS
The best thing about tapas is that you can have a snack or a feast, and the menu is flexible enough to suit everybody.
For a special treat, ask for a plate of the Bellota Jamón. It’s ham from Black Iberian Pigs, which are allowed to roam in oak woodland in the southwest of Spain where they eat acorns, herbs and roots. The oleic acid of the acorns infiltrates the meat of this pure and singular species, transferring exquisite flavours and aromas to the ham. It is said to be one of Spain’s national treasures. Reserve a Table or for parties of 10 or more please complete our Group Enquiry form and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
Tapas is a most sociable and flexible way to eat. The word is derived from the Spanish tapar meaning ‘to cover’ – a tapa was a cover for a pot (similar to the English word ‘top’).
Tapas-style cuisine exist in many cultures. In Venice, it’s cicchetti (literally, small plates); in Mexico, they’re called botanas; in Argentina, picada; and in Brazil, petiscos.
Starting with cold tapas, we nibbled huge prawns, juicy chorizo and ham, seafood and Russian salad, then we received an array of hot tapas dishes which seemed to just keep coming ….. mmmmmm!Martin James – Food Writer
