SquareMeal Review of
This bright and airy new venture from the family-owned restaurant group that oversees El Ganso and Gallipoli fits right in with Broadway Market’s hip crowd, with its on-trend offering of Mediterranean and Levantine small plates. Tuyo excels at serving dishes with subtle but effective twists. Take the unassuming falafel balls, coated in sesame seeds and dipped in a gooey black olive and piquillo tapenade; the beautifully presented duck breast on a bed of bulgur wheat, with a smooth nutmeg carrot purée dotted around the plate; and the tender octopus atop a mound of hummus and fragrant cumin yoghurt. More conventional small plates include grilled prawn and Padrón pepper skewers, and a mini-burger with piquillo ketchup, onion, tzatziki and manchego, while for pudding the banana and pecan cake soaked in coffee syrup and topped with mascarpone is an indulgent triumph. From the list of fun cocktails, we enjoyed the Passion Fruit Martini; staff are happy to suggest sips based on your preferences. On-trend, relaxed and affordable, Tuyo is a welcome addition to this gentrified neighbourhood.
