Spanish restaurants London: cross-culinary exchange

Picking a Spanish restaurant London has on offer is easy, with London’s Spanish population easily the highest in the UK. Spanish residents of London are concentrated in the west London districts of Kensington, Regent's Park and Chelsea, but there are many Spanish restaurants in London outside of these area. Besides, there is a rich history linking Spain with England. Intermarriages between the English and Spanish royals were numerous, with Catherine of Aragon being the first wife of the notorious Henry VIII and responsible for introducing Spanish culture to British courtly and popular life. It certainly looks like King Henry enjoyed his wife’s paella a little too much.

    Spanish restaurant London: typical menus

    Al fresco dining is popular in Spanish restaurants in London – seated outdoors is the perfect way to share tapas or a dish featuring spicy Spanish chorizo or jamón Ibérico – Spanish ham. Spanish restaurants in London also serve dishes such as the world-famous paella or the hors d’oeuvres called 'pincho' or 'pinxto'. Gazpacho is a typically Andalusian dish of cold vegetable soup that you can find at many of the Spanish restaurants in London. Spanish wines have lost their reputation for being cheap and nasty, so be sure to pick out a good drop from the wine list or ask the advice of the particular London Spanish restaurant you have chosen.

    Tapas restaurants London: a favourite way to share

    Tapas is a distinctly Spanish sharing dish that has taken the world by storm. Diversity and sociability make popular – explaining the huge number of tapas restaurants London has to offer. The legend: Spanish bartenders saw customers covering their sherries with bread or slices of meat and decided to serve small plates of salty, thirst-inducing food over the bar. Now, tapas is not simply a drinking partner, with tapas restaurants in London making the Spanish share platter a centrepiece. The tapas restaurants London has to offer are spread out like so many small, delectable servings. Greenwich has the best tapas restaurants London has to offer, or head to Camden Town, Marylebone, Soho, Shepherd’s Bush, or Clapham for authentic London tapas restaurants with a Spanish cantina feel. Good tapas doesn’t have to come expensive, especially considering tapas is designed to be shared amongst friends.

    The menu of a given tapas restaurant London has to offer includes many classic Spanish tapas dishes alongside contemporary inventions.
