Tapas Revolution comes to Bath, Thursday 1 June
The newest branch of Omar (who isn’t known as “the Antonio Banderas of Spanish food” for nothing, if you know what I mean) Allibhoy’s fully authentic Spanish restaurant and bar Tapas Revolution officially opens in SouthGate on Thursday 1 June. From albondigas to zarzuela via chorizo, calamares, tortilla, gambas, jamon and churros by way of all kinds of other Iberian delights that make a UK spell check meltdown in revolt, this boy’s terrific tapas is set to tantalise in style. As for the paella: having cooked this traditional family crowd-pleaser that originated in Valencia many centuries ago alongside Omar himself last night, we can vouch for the utterly seductive charms of this particular dish. The paella was pretty tasty too….anyway:
Omar’s menus take inspiration from his family’s recipes that he grew up with and Spain’s culinary culture of sharing, socialising and eating. “Tapas Revolution is based on the lively and bustling tapas bars in Madrid, Barcelona and Seville, and I’m looking forward to bringing my version to Bath,” he says. “Tapas is more than food – it’s part of our everyday culture, and I believe that food and life are always best shared.”
The Tapas Revolution will start early every day in SouthGate, from breakfast (served until 11.30am) all the way through until 11pm every night (10pm Sundays). There’s a spacious bar area to the front of the restaurant which is just as well, as a selection of premium gins and beers exported directly from Spain, Spanish-inspired cocktails (the chilli and ginger cobbler is amazing), proper sangria, top-notch Cava and, of course, plenty of vino all deserve to be thoroughly investigated – bear in mind too that there’ll be half-price jugs of sangria plus 2-for-1 gin’n’tonics/cocktails Sunday-Friday from 4-7pm.
We will, of course, be presenting a full review of the Tapas Revolution experience as soon as the restaurant is fully up-and-running; for now, however, we can’t recommend saying hola to Omar at your earliest opportunity. Olé!Categorised in: News
