SquareMeal Review of The Little Taperia

Bronze Award

Although there is a bar – serving knock-out Negronis, local craft brews and Aperol Spritz – the emphasis in this buzzy joint is very much on food. And what food… Not a single dish disappointed on our visit, from simple pan con tomate or courgette tortilla (with a deliciously melting middle) to stuffed baby squid on pisto or chubby chorizo bombs simmered in red wine. We seriously swooned for the photogenic morcilla Scotch egg with a perfectly soft-yolked quail’s egg: destined to be the star of Instagram accounts right across SW17. Tapas staples from jamon to patatas bravas are also on offer, backed by a Spanish wine list with some great sherries, including en rama manzanilla. As at Little Bar, you’ll a big welcome in a bijou space; yes, it’s small, but with seating at both the bar and kitchen, you shouldn’t have to wait too long for a table.
