Oh the sunny shores of Spain have brought many wonders to our countries, and food is certainly one of them. It begs the question, however, how much of the Spanish way of eating actually fits within the hustle and bustle of London. As many other Mediterranean cuisines, Spanish food, and tapas more precisely, are the sign of a more laid back life, of siestas and “social eating”. Does Tapas Brindisa then fit in London?

I would say yes – even if perhaps not in the form that it would have been presented in Spain. The window that lets you look into the kitchen provides for great distraction until you’re seated at a table, which, even on a busy Tuesday night, didn’t take all that long.
I had eaten here before, and my general opinion remains the same: it’s quite a decent place to grab some food. Some dishes are quite delicious, but some are often mediocre. The staff is friendly, the place is easily accessible as it is just near the tube entrance and does provide a glimpse into the Spanish way of eating – so I recommend getting several dishes to share. The eggplant dish tasted just like zacusca (a Romanian/Balkan food) which was a bit surprising. I would definitely get the Deep Fried Monte Enebro – highlight of the night. There’s just something about cheese and honey that was match-made in heaven.
