Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy will be bringing a taste of the real Spain to Shoreditch next February, with the opening of his third tapas bar, Tapas Revolution on Bethnal Green Road.
Omar’s latest tapas opening will continue the Spanish food mission that he and his team began with the critically acclaimed Tapas Revolution in Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush), and Tapas Revolution in Bluewater (Kent).
Tapas Revolution Shoreditch will be Omar’s personal interpretation of the lively and bustling tapas bars in his hometown of Madrid. This contemporary Spanish tapas bar will be open for all-day dining and offer fresh, high quality tapas, using ingredients Omar has sourced from across Spain.
The menu will be simply divided into four sections; meat, fish, vegetables and egg dishes. Regional and seasonal sharing specials will be displayed on a large board and ‘Paella los Jueves’ will be honored – a nationwide tradition in Spain of serving paella exclusively once a week on Thursday. For those who just want to stop for a quick drink, there will be a selection of Spanish craft beers, an array of soft drinks and wine from small Spanish producers. The wine will be served in a porrón – a traditional wine glass pitcher with a long spout that’s perfect for sharing.
Designed by Shoreditch based designers Alexander Waterworth Interiors, the signature bar will be copper topped as found in all the Tapas Revolution tapas bars. The open kitchen will be at the heart of everything and visible from the street. The design will feature fresh, urban and contemporary colours combined with more rustic highlights to create an easy all-day atmosphere.
Omar Allibhoy comments on the opening of Tapas Revolution, Shoreditch; “Shoreditch is a great location to open our third Tapas Revolution and first standalone site. It’s a great chance to further spread the word about tapas to a new audience and bring an authentic taste of Spain to Shoreditch.”
