Tapas Dishes at Tapas Revolution








I was so happy when my lovely friend Deb from Country Heart and Home invited me along to the Tapas Revolution Masterclass with her, learning how to cook Spanish dishes is something I've always wanted to do. It's something I've never tried to prepare myself before, but after doing this I've realised how simple some of the recipes actually are. 




Tapas Revolution has recently opened in Greys Quarter of Eldon Square. The owner and founder, Omar Allibhoy invited us along to cook up some of his famous dishes. Omar had worked alongside the likes of Gordon Ramsey & Marco Pierre White. His aim is to bring the locals together morning, noon and night to enjoy his take on local Spanish dishes matched with refreshing beverages.



On the evening, we were welcomed to the table with some stunning cocktails, we went for the Ginabella Galacia, plum gin infused with red berry tea and tonic, the glass was as big as my head but the twist on G&T really did please the pallet. I also got the Espresso Martini, which was lovely and creamy with a good kick from the Espresso. I'm definitely going to head back and try them again. 

I thought I would share the dishes with you that we made, with my opinion of each so that if you head to Tapas Revolution you've got an idea of some dishes that you might enjoy. 




First up we cooked Chorizo a la Parilla, which is chunks of chorizo reduced down in a Spanish cider. Definitely my favourite dish that we cooked, the sauce ends up tasting like a tangy jam perfect with crusty bread. 




We then went on to cook Gambas al Ajillo, pink tiger prawns cooked quickly in chilli and garlic. Such a simple dish with so much flavour! Another one of my favourites, the prawns were really sweet and worked well against the sharpness of the garlic.




Next up was a dish that I thought I would hate, Sepia a la Plancha, this was chopped up cuttlefish fried in a garlic and parsley olive oil sauce. I had never heard of cuttlefish before tonight so was abit dubious as to what it would be like, however it was actually really nice. I think I thought it would be a lot like squid, which I'm not keen on, but it just wasn't chewy at all.




And finally we made Pan Con Tomate, the Spanish version of a bruschetta. Grilled ciabatta bread rubbed with raw garlic for a nice tangy edge, and topped with tomato and olive oil. However in Tapas, the tomato is almost like a purée rather than slices, for me much nicer as well. As the flavour is spread right across the bread not just in chunks here and there.


We then finished the night off with Paella de Pollo prepared for us by the staff at Tapas Revolution. The paella included chicken, and green beans mixed in a chicken stock, I'm not normally a fan of risotto like dishes however I did enjoy this.


These are just a few of the items on Omar's menu, pop along and try them out.

Hope you enjoyed reading, RB
