el parador

Filed under: food — benmetz @ 9:37 am

dinner last night at el parador, again…  what is there to say about this place?  i keep on heading back there – the food keeps on excelling.  from the pure de habas (broad bean puree) through the hinojo del parador (roast fennel with beans and a spanish cheese) to the solomillo (fillet steak) it all stands out as the highest quality and most thoughtfully constructed tapas in london.  forget the high brow experience of any of the three brindisas (although in many ways they are fantastic) or the low brow la tasca chain that leaves a private equity bad taste in the mouth – head to el parador and relax into a menu that’s worth revisiting again and again.  and there’s a garden out back perfect for the short al fresco window of opportunity we have in london…
