I’ve long admired and enjoyed Brindisa tapas – the endlessly busy tapas bar in Borough Market is most definitely worth the wait. So I was delighted to find out they were opening a more formal restaurant in Soho. This place seems somewhat undiscovered – I went on a Friday evening but it wasn’t too busy, but I can’t imagine it will stay that way for long.
Tortilla de patatas, crispy fried squid
The menu here is a bit different to the tapas bar, with a few larger plates as well as the to-die-for tapas. We went for a whole mix of tapas, including the tortilla, the seasonal asparagus, crispy fried squid, lamb chimichurri skewers, and the grilled chorizo on toast.

The standout choice for me was the lamb skewers – I’ll definitely be going for the skewers trio next time. It’s a very chilled atmosphere, and somewhat on the pricey side for tapas, but you’re undoubtedly paying for the quality and the flavours. Still hands down the best tapas I’ve had in London.
