SquareMeal Review of Trangallán

Selling itself as a ‘gastronomic and cultural space’ with a Spanish accent, Trangallán is housed in a disused Stoke Newington social club that has been filled with furniture from auction rooms, markets and fairs. Everything here is also for sale, if you fancy putting in an offer for some cutlery or the chairs you’re sitting on. The ground floor is a tapas hangout dealing in “seasonal Spanish food”, so graze your way through charcuterie, cheeses, smoked anchovies and more fashionable delights such as tuna tartare with ajo blanco, green and white asparagus with egg yolk and crispy jamón or Iberian ‘presa’ (pork shoulder) with chimichurri and ‘wrinkled’ potatoes. We’re also fans of the gutsy carrilleras (a stew of pig’s cheeks) with savoy cabbage. The Spanish-led drinks list features some interesting ‘natural’ wines and exclusive, ‘limited edition’ sherries. Meanwhile, Tranga’s dinky basement is given over to regular film screenings, cabaret, flamenco, sherry tastings and other events. “Fantastic, unique…and so very close!” cheers one Stokey local. 

Best Female Chefs Series


In the Year of the Woman, SquareMeal is running a series of interviews with top female chefs. Read here to discover the sense of achievement Monica Galetti feels about owning her first restaurant, what it’s like working with her husband, and the different ways in which Masterchef has changed her life.

Former Spanish Wine List of the Year

By no means the largest selection of Spanish wines, but the Trangallán list has real personality and focus, happy to eschew safe options and put its money on quirkier choices. You’ll find a few wines from Italy and France, but the real star is here is the enthusiastic line-up of sherries. Simply executed but with a clear vision, this is an excellent list.
