Squaremeal Review of Alquimia ?

A casual and vibrant riverside spot, Alquimia works hard at carving a slice of the real Spain out of Putney – with occasional gastronomic flourishes to boot. It was opened in 2013 by a team with restaurant experience across the Spanish regions. All the tapas classics (gambas al ajillo, patatas bravas, tortilla Española) are here, along with various paellas for two; lobster paella is the house special (24-hours’ notice needed). Care is taken both in sourcing prime ingredients and in dish presentation. Red tuna tartare looks almost Japanese, arriving as a carefully constructed disc, a neat scoop of creamy guacamole on the side; fat slices of ibérica pluma (pork shoulder) are artfully adorned with red berries and apple. On our visit, a sizeable (and merry) Spanish contingent were dining – a good sign. Further incentives?: a dreamy list of sherries, all available by the glass; an all-Spanish wine list; and reasonable pricing.

    Calçotada is an annual event in Tarragona, Catalonia. It celebrates the harvest of Calçot, a long spring onion with a sweeter taste during the winter months. The calçots are grilled until...
