Morito Exmouth Market 22

Squaremeal Review of Morito Exmouth Market ?

‘Orange is the New Black’, as they say on TV, which makes the chosen colour for the dinky offshoot of big-hitting Moro totally on-trend. Morito is a tiny spot and it fills up fast (bookings are only taken at lunchtime), but we guarantee you’ll love this immensely stylish little joint. Once you’re in, get stuck into small plates with a decidedly rustic Spanish flavour: salt cod croquetas, Padrón peppers, jamón Ibérico, patatas bravas and other tapas classics are all here, but keep an eye out for the specials too – perhaps pork belly with mojo verde or deep-fried rabbit shoulder flavoured with rose harissa. The plancha turns out lamb chops spiced up with cumin and paprika, while desserts might include a divine chocolate and olive oil mousse. The enticing all-Iberian wine list features some splendid sherries and watch out for Morito’s annual ‘seafood and sherry’ festival.

Sherry and seafood pairing to bring the taste of sea to London!

by   gold reviewer (41)

Oct 2016

Morito's 4th Annual Seafood Festival runs throughout the week to bring the taste of the sea to London with their sherry and seafood pairing. Seafood has been the core at Morito's heart and I have been a fan of Morito's cookbook. The recipes that I have tried have made regular appearances at large dinner parties, as well as a flair of elegance for a romantic dinner for two for Mr L and myself. I could not be more than excited when my friend took me on this special seafood menu paired...

Editor's pick Unlike bigger and slightly more upmarket neigbour Moro (the one your parents will really approve of) there are no reservations at the orange formica clad bar, where sharp elbowed trendies joust with local suits for space to pile their terracotta plates and baskets of fresh soft roundels and densely spiced flat breads made in Moro's bakery next door. The bread is essential. Warm if you're lucky, moreish either way. It soaks up the fresh olive oil bottled on each table and its soft, open structure...

    Emma Rose Tully :: Review: Morito | Daydreamer

    Morito is a tapas bar right next door to the famously successful Moro in Clerkenwell; it’s run by the same people, Sam and Sam Clark, and occupies a spot that used to belong to the legendarily good Spanish deli Brindisa. The menu at Morito changes on a daily basis and is inspired by the tastes and flavours of the western Mediterranean: Spain, Portugal, Gypsy and North Africa.

    With a tiny interior, couples are invited to sit at the bar whilst larger groups huddle around small tables that line the walls. Sunny orange tones decorate the walls while lively music and the chitter-chat of diners fill the room. The...

    Dips Dines :: Morito - Excuse the Chairs | Dips Dines

    I’d been eagerly anticipating my meal at Morito, given it’s the little sibling of Moro where I’d once upon a time had an extremely enjoyable dinner.

    Located the heart of Exmouth Market, you’ll find this very small & very busy tapas bar. Bear in mind you can’t reserve a table in advance – although if it’s full when you show up, put your name & number down and be free to wander off for a drink – they’ll happily ring you when your table is ready...

    COVERS & CAPERS :: Morito, Exmouth Market | COVERS & CAPERS

    It’s no surprise, then, that the best Spanish food I’ve had is in London, as my recent drop in to Morito in Exmouth Market confirmed. Unlike myself, proprietors Sam and Sam Clark clearly knew where to look when they went abroad. The resulting inspiration has to be the best Spanish import since Enrique Iglesias first graced our ears with ‘Hero’.
    First impressions seem authentically Catalan – small and unassuming just the sort of place I’d walk past in hope of better but with nothing particular in mind. But in London this is exactly what you’re after. Morito has remained one of the best places in the capital for...

    Vi Vian :: Morito on Seafood Festival

    Morito’s 4th Annual Seafood Festival runs throughout the week, with two sessions in one evening – 1700 hours and 1930 hours, to bring the taste of the sea to London with their sherry and seafood pairing. Seafood has been the core at Morito’s heart and I have been a fan of Morito’s cookbook. The recipes that I have tried have made regular appearances at large dinner parties, as well as a flair of elegance for a romantic dinner for two for Mr L and myself.
    I could not be more than excited when my friend took me on this special seafood menu paired with sherry!

Sam and Samantha Clark

The husband-and-wife duo behind Moro and its neighbouring tapas bar Morito come as a pair. Both worked at The River Café, but it was at legendary gastropub The Eagle that they met. Their honeymoon was a Camper-van trip around Spain and Morocco, on a recipe-gathering mission in advance of the 1997 opening of their now famous eatery on Exmouth Market. They get rave reviews for their various Moro-themed cookbooks too.
