This is one of our favourite new joints in town. With high ceilings, monochrome furnishings, street art and black and white documentary photos, it looks cool to start with. Despite its high-end credentials the atmosphere is casual with diners and drinkers spilling from the exposed front onto the street.
Led by Michelin star chef Jason Atherton, the first British chef to undergo training at El Buli, this tiny Wanchai tapas bar ticks all the tantalising taste-bud boxes, both on the food and drinks front. The menu is based on Spanish tapas but with definite hints of Asia, Italy and France thrown in the mix as well.
The wine list is varied and full of quality, including a good range of sherries. Drink it straight like your gran or hit their signature Oyster Shots – a fresh oyster served on a bed of multi-coloured sea salt with a dash of gazpacho, a rasher of crispy jamon iberico and a glass of Amontillado to wash it all down. We’re big fans, but unfortunately we’re not alone. The no-reservation policy means if you want a seat you'd better arrive early, as the queues don't stop till the staff go home.
