Square Meal Review of Lola Rojo ?

Lola Rojo, a tapas bar for the post-modern era, puts its emphasis on food & wine rather than San Miguels & sangria. It’s a deli as well as a restaurant, so customers have their tastebuds titillated by an attractive display of nibbles. Tapas clichés are a rarity. Yes, there are boquerones & paella, but you’re unlikely to see deep-fried squid rings or boiled mussels. The menu instead offers ‘excellent’ piquillo peppers with garlic prawns, ‘fab’ chorizo lollipops with quince aïoli, & mojama (smoked dried tuna) with a tomato dressing. For a proper Spanish experience, accompany your choices with a glass of fino or amontillado; otherwise, there’s plenty to interest wine enthusiasts on the all-Spanish wine list. Compared to other tapas bars, the bill may seem large, but for the quality of cooking, it’s fairly reasonable.

    Agent Restauranteur :: Lola Rojo – London SW11

    On a balmy summer mid-week evening, Northcote road is a delightful mish-mash of commuters scurrying home, post-work drinkers on their 3rd or 4th “quick pint”, and hopeful diners window-shopping along on the look-out for something appetising. Sadly, many of the latter group will be tempted in by one of the fairly average chain restaurants, incongruous to the numerous upmarket stores and cute independent antique shops, filled with knick knacks and shabby chic furnishings, that populate Northcote Road. However, should they hold out, and venture down past the big brands, inviting you in with ’2 for 1 cocktails’ and overpriced burgers, they’ll find a handful of super local restaurants: Lola Rojo is just one of them...
