We recently ran a competition on Facebook to find a budding food blogger who'd be willing to take on the challenging task of dining at one of our restaurants. The winner was James Cribb who chose to eat at Tapas Revolution - one of SouthGate's newest restaurants. Keep reading to find out what he thought - we can guarantee you'll be craving some of this delicious Spanish cuisine in no time!
SouthGate’s latest addition to the line-up of tastebud-tantalising restaurants is the brilliant Tapas Revolution. Exuding authentic Spanish vibrancy and atmosphere, accompanied by a delicious range of varied tapas small plates, this place is a must if you’re looking for a great selection of tasty treats, served up with a lively vibe. Don’t be put off if you’re not a tapas connoisseur - the friendly and helpful staff will be happy to make some suggestions on what (and how much) you should order.
Particular standouts include croquetas de jamón (deep-fried Ibérico ham and béchamel croquettes), alitas de pollo a la miel y limón (marinated crispy chicken wings with lemon and honey dressing) and chorizo a la parrilla (bread with grilled smoked sausage, piquillo pepper and cider reduction).
The great range of food is accompanied by an equally great range of drinks, and with 1/2 price sangria jugs and certain cocktails on a 2 for 1 deal (Sunday to Friday between 4-7pm), you’ll struggle to remain either hungry or thirsty!
The food is served traditionally, in no particular order, just as soon as each dish is ready, which makes for a very sociable, everybody-get-stuck-in kind of environment - a most welcome alternative to the stuffy, formal affair you experience all too often these days in a lot of restaurants. If you’re looking for something a little different, and a lot of fun, then Tapas Revolution is a must.
Try leaving without succumbing to the incredibly indulgent churros - irresistible!
