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.

    Tapas restaurants in London: typical tapas tips

    The menu of a given tapas restaurant London has to offer includes many classic Spanish tapas dishes alongside contemporary inventions. Not surprising given the flexibility of the format: small dishes that offer up just one or two perfectly matched ingredients. Seafood, olives, and breads are common, and some tapas restaurants in London will replicate the northern Spanish tradition of serving each dish with a toothpick to keep it together and track a customer’s consumption. Finding the best tapas restaurants London has to offer is easy with Quandoo. Select tapas – it’s popular enough to warrant its own category – and browse results, narrowing your search with the price and district selectors. Tapas is a central part of Spanish cuisine, so you might want to find Quandoo’s Spanish cuisine partners and see if they are actually one of the many London tapas restaurants in the city.
