Spanish food is as popular among the Scottish public as a weekend away in Barcelona or two weeks on the sunloungers in Benidorm, so it isn’t surprising to hear that Tinto Tapas in East Kilbride is going from strength to strength. Their location, right in the centre of town and close to East Kilbride station, makes them easy to reach from all over South Lanarkshire and Glasgow city, and their food is what makes them worth the journey. Head out to Hunter Street for an authentic taste of Spain – and bring a couple of amigos with you for the ride: tapas is all about sharing!
A ray of Spanish sunshine in the notably unsunny confines of East Kilbride, a trip to Tinto Tapas on Hunter Street is certain to lighten your mood. Their choice of tapas is up there with the best in Glasgow, and – as anyone who has been to Iberia will know – the small plates selections beloved across Spain are best enjoyed by a large group, so gather your troops together and set sail for East Kilbride. There is more than enough in their meat, fish and veggie choices to satisfy the whole party, and their wine list is filled with Spanish vintages, so you’ll be well sated in that department as well.
A quick flick through the Tinto Tapas menu is guaranteed to get the mouth watering. Seafood specialities are as plentiful as the seas around Spain, with prawn, cod, squid and anchovy tapas dishes, as well as the iconic paella. Meat-lovers will appreciate their chorizo, chicken and ham options, and we’d recommend the pollo croquetas, chicken croquettes. Vegetarians visiting this outlying area of Glasgow will not be let down either: from patatas bravas to Spanish omelette, they have something that everyone can enjoy. Head out to Hunter Street in East Kilbride for a Spanish feast to take you back to the Costa in no time at all.
