Trangallan is an atmospheric spanish tapas bar located in Newington Green. In both occasions we visited the food was fantastic. We had, as a starter, the vesuvio tomato, strawberry & basil salad and the lomo iberico. As for the main, we ordered the beef tenderloin, which was really well cooked, and the iberian pluma pork. Not only the food is marvellous at Trangallan but also the atmosphere is amazing.
Escocesa is one of our favourite Spanish tapas, located in Church Street in Stoke Newington. We would suggest you to sit at the bar; the experience is unique having the chef cooking in front of you, behind the bar. We have loved every dish we have tasted so far. You should definitely try the razor clams and the clams with jamon and pumpkin. Very good value for money as well as atmopshere.
All Ember Yard dishes are inspired from the Spanish and Italian cuisines. It’s a nice environment, quite dark though, therefore recommended mainly for the winter. We went there on a Saturday night and although we hadn’t make any reservation, we found a table; quite lucky, we would say, as it looked busy. We had a bottle of good red wine as well as a variety of tapas such as the grilled ibérico presa, the pork ribs, the lamb gigot and the courgette flowers. Everything was a unique palette experience.
We went to Eyrebrothers a busy Friday night.. As this place is quite new though, we found a table easily. Not impressed from the atmosphere though. We went for a selection of tapas while enjoying an unusually smooth and fruity douro red wine with appetising flavour. We really enjoyed the grilled lamb as well as the paleta iberica bellota acorn-fed shoulder ham. Although, the restaurant was not busy at all, the service was quite slow.
A place to gather, eat and drink.. There are certain nights that music events also take place; a very cosy and atmosperic little restaurant. We had the chance to enjoy spanish music while we were having a variety of tapas. Order for sure the hamon and cheese croquettes..yummy 🙂
