Square Meal Review of Cigala ?

This old-school king of tapas has been at the crest of Bloomsbury’s Spanish wave for more than 10 solid years and continues to garner praise for its line-up of classic plates – despite the odd gripe about ‘slimy, grey’ tortilla and ‘undercooked’ meatballs. The monochrome feel of the whitewashed walls, white linen and solid cutlery contrasts with the big-hitting flavours on Cigala’s colossal menu: ‘I was handed a piece of paper listing every tapas dish ever created’, notes one reader. Guests are invited to roam around Spain, taking in homespun chorizo with fried bread and peppers, crisp mushroom croquetas, arroz negra and pans of seafood paella to share. Sign off with orange flan, frozen whisky cake or Spanish regional cheeses plus a glass of sweet sherry, and be sure to indulge in the spectacular wine list – especially the reds.
