Kemey and I had a gorgeous dinner at Brixton’s Boqueria tapas bar and restaurant this past weekend. Winner of Time Out’s Best Cheap Eats 2012, we found Boqueria to offer tasty value for money. During our visit, portion size for most dishes was more than ample; service was brisk and attentive; and the vibe was delightfully low key with a bit of a buzz in the air. The mostly local guests seemed to come in all ages and varieties – couples, families with small children, groups of friends catching up – and all appeared equally excited to be spending a lovley evening out at Boqueria...

London has no shortage of options when it comes to tapas. Whether it be the genuine article (Barrafina, Jose, Brindisa), or the multitude of tapas ''fusion'' places such as Kopapa, Imli, Bocca di Lupo, Bodega Negra... the list goes on and on! So I must admit I always have a slight apprehension when it comes to trying new tapas places. Don't get me wrong, I've had some of the best meals of my life sitting atop cramped bar tops in Barcelona, but it's rather difficult to differentiate yourself from other places when there's two-a-penny serving the exact same dishes on every high street in the city...

It’s named after Barcelona’s extremely popular food market, and is located a little further out from the hub-bub of Brixton’s centre towards the Clapham end of Acre Lane.Inside it’s contemporary, bright, sleek and the night I go with my friend, Paul – rammed!...

There’s no shortage of tapas restaurants in London and Boqueria is another. It’s a charming looking restaurant perched on the Brixton borders with a relaxed feel to it and a modern décor. Roughly L-shaped, the section towards the back has glass-paneled ceilings overhead that allow in lots of lovely natural light. The menu boasts a reasonable range of choices with both a traditional and contemporary approach...

Being from Spain, I find really hard to value Spanish food out of my country because, as it usually happens, it’s very easy to feel disappointed. In fact, in my effort to show some of my friends the great things of our cuisine, I have been very picky selecting a proper restaurant where we could have those Spanish flavours I was looking for. Thankfully, Boquería was a great success. We decided, and I don’t think that’s a surprise for anyone, to order several tapas to share. The Chorizo with cider transported me straight back to my grandma’s kitchen, and just for that reason it has to be my favourite plate. Actually,...

It was a dark, stormy (and possibly snowy) night…when I headed South to seek warmth and refuge against the bitter cold of the british winter in the form of Spanish tapas at Boqueria, a Spanish restaurant in London. This is the story of how a small-plates hater, a couple of non-foodies, and a East-end die hard, always cold girl (that would be me) made it to Brixton, ate a ton of tapas, got fairly drunk and didn’t regret making the trip. If it’s not as good as the real deal (Boqueria is “the” food market in Barcelona), at least it’s cheaper and closer and doesn’t require Ryanair inferno. ¡Que viva Boqueria!...
