The Spanish are real pros when it comes to delivering fast food. You don’t get much faster than traditional Spanish tapas after all.
With his Tapas Revolution, Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy has successfully converted that authentic local tapas vibe into a mini chain – there are already venues in Westfield London at Shepherd’s Bush and in Bluewater Kent – and next month he’s extending it to Shoreditch’s Bethnal Green Road.
Tapas Revolution is Allibhoy’s personal interpretation of the lively and bustling tapas bars in his hometown of Madrid and this latest instalment will be open all day and use ingredients he has sourced from across Spain.
The menu is divided into four sections: meat, fish, vegetables and egg dishes and regional and seasonal sharing specials will be displayed on a large board – expect lots of Paella on Thursdays in accordance with Spanish tradition, ‘Paella los Jueves.’ Drink Spanish craft beers and wine from small Spanish producers – the latter comes served in a porrón – a traditional wine glass pitcher with a long spout.
As at the other venues, there will be plenty of local colour in the décor and the bar will be copper topped. There will also be an open kitchen visible from the street.
