Black Pig with White Pearls

Squaremeal Review of Black Pig with White Pearls ?

Plenty of pop-ups have been going permanent recently, and the latest to follow the trend is the Black Pig with White Pearls, which has set its Spanish roots in Stoke Newington with an intimate yet trendy offer spread across two floors. Upstairs is a casual tapas/pintxos eatery/bar, with more formal meals served in the basement. Friendly staff greet customers and recite the day’s dishes verbally, while the chef cooks specialiites from his native Extremadura. The eponymous ‘black pig’ (aka. Ibérico pork) naturally features heavily on the menu: the fillet served medium-rare on a bed of roast potatoes is a memorable signature dish. Elsewhere, tapas highlights include rich, fluffy black pudding on toast with piquillo peppers, and the mixed platter of cured meats with slices of jamón is so heavenly you’ll be dreaming about it for weeks.

the best Spanish restaurant

Nov 2013

I've been to this restaurant 6 times now and i love it! I travel to Spain a lot and have eaten at quite a few Spanish restaurants in London and I can honestly say that they are one of the best. The portions compared to others are really good, especially the black squid ink rice which you get too much! Price wise I think its very reasonable and some dishes are cheaper or the same price i pay when i eat out in Spain so I don't think its that expensive really as i usually have 3 tapas and i am full...

I visited this restaurant to celebrate a friends birthday in July 2013. He had hired out the '60's deco' basement and we each paid £25 for a set menu. Wine was extra and was very reasonably priced. The set menu we received was far from what I would consider a £25 meal. The food was good quality, however, the selection of meat and fish supplied was derisory; I ate 2 rings of calamari, 2 balls of black pudding and one slice of pork. Having eaten tapas many times and visited the south of Spain I was...

I like to venture out to Dalston/Stoke Newington to meet up with friends and try one of the many new places that frequently pop up there, so I got very excited when I heard good things about the Black Pig with White Pearls. Admittedly, the prices looked a little steep, but hey, maybe they do really big portions or the quality of the food is out of this world? I am afraid I have to say that our evening was a letdown in both respects. The food is not horrible, but not staggeringly good either (several...

I celebrated my Birthday here last week with 18 friends and I can honestly say that it was the best Birthday meal I have ever had! I thought we was eating up stairs but when we got there the manager gave us the private basement room which was amazing. Its like being in someone's living room! We had it all to ourselves for the whole evening. We had a selection of tapas from the set menu followed by the Iberico pork fillet which was one of the best pieces of meat I have ever tried! It just melts in...

In line with the current vogue for pop up restaurants, 4 of us went along to this place in Stoke Newington on Saturday night. It unfortunately suffers from the same fate as a lot of pop up restaurants, which is that because they are the perceived to be so cool the restaurants buy into their own hype and think they are better than the place really is. This is magnified in Dalston/Stoke Newington, where this is a common trait everywhere, not only in restaurants. So how did the problems manifest themselves>...
