Squaremeal Review of Moro ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016The word “love” crops up repeatedly in Moro’s plaudits – a sure sign that it’s still held in high regard after rocking on for two decades. From day one, Sam and Samantha Clark’s ground-breaking eatery made an impact with its zinc-topped bar, pavement tables, wood-fired oven and compelling Spanish/North African cuisine. The whole shebang still thrills, although nothing can trump the food: heady spicing and subtly matched flavours are at the heart of things, from a lamb and saffron broth with wee dumplings, or a rustic salad of warm white beans and celery topped with bottarga, to luscious chocolate and apricot tart. In between, the wood-fired oven makes easy work of sesame chicken (served with couscous), while the charcoal grill offers up lamb with fava bean and bitter leaf purée. Alternatively, pick some small plates from the tapas bar menu – perhaps fried spiced chickpeas or anchovies on toast. The wine list shows the same geographical interests as the menu, and the sherry line-up warrants proper consideration. “Fabulous, I just love this place”, raves one fan.

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.
