Terroir Tapas is an environmentally conscious restaurant concept in the pretty seaside town of Bournemouth. The restaurant is well-located in the east of Boscombe, a quaint suburb of the town and is close to public transport links. Terroir Tapas is also in close proximity to Boscombe Beach, offering views of the brilliant blue sea.
The concept of the eco-friendly restaurant is simple, with a clear focus on appreciating the earth. The restaurant is all about reducing waste, re-using, and not using too much energy. The ethos of the tapas eatery is immediately evident through the design, as the décor of the restaurant truly reflects the environmental mission. The interior of the restaurant features a bar top made out of reused coffee cup lids and plastic chopping boards, while the dining tables are impressively made out of yoghurt pots. The innovation at Terroir Tapas is exciting and fascinating.
The restaurant also avoids using create plastic and paper waste with washable napkins and their electrical power is supplied from renewable sources. As the restaurant doesn’t rely on gas, the ovens are run on compressed wood dust and the grill is fuelled by Dorset charcoal – which gives the food an amazing well-rounded flavour profile.
The food at Terroir continues the trend of caring for the environment, as the menu is seasonal and 60 percent is always vegetarian or vegan. The ingredients are all well-sourced to ensure that the produce is ethical and sustainable. The menu features exciting dishes such as artichoke bravas, a twist on the typical Spanish dish, Poole Bay oysters, and a wholesome porchetta ramen. Locally caught fish is available too, depending on what has been caught that day, while a chopping board bhaji is on offer too – made from the offcuts of other veggie dishes to ensure that food is not wasted.
