Brindisa’s latest venture feels right at home in funky Shoreditch and nails the Catalonian vibe with mosaic tiles aplenty, ‘great-looking’ interiors and a lovely alfresco area at the rear – perfect when the sun is out. A groaning menu promises everything from charcuterie, cheeses and deli classics to house tapas and various speciality arroz (rice) dishes: highlights of our visits have included authentic pa amb tomaquet (bread with tomatoes), excellent jamón, a not-for-the-squeamish Ibérico pork shoulder served daringly rare, and fiduea (short pasta with fish and alioli). Desserts such as crema catalana with strawberries and torrijas (Spain’s answer to French toast) are also rated as ‘absolutely brilliant’. Despite proper London prices, small portions and the occasional ’tasteless’ misfire, this is definitely ‘real Catalan food’. Fans of Spanish wine and sherry will find much to love about the well-chosen list.
