The Black Pig With White Pearls is an authentic Spanish tapas bar nestled between the hustle and bustle of Dalston and the village-like atmosphere of Stoke Newington. Specialising in Iberico, meat they seek to source only the best quality, fresh Iberico pork from farmers in Spain, which is used in their generous servings of tapas. Starting out as a one-off pop-up restaurant, they've come a very long way since their humble beginnings. Not many pop-ups enjoy the longevity that The Black Pig has had to become an established restaurant.
The name “Black Pig”comes from the meat used. Black in colour, the Iberico pig can be found in the southern regions of Spain. Head chef David is Spanish born and bred, hailing from the town of Extremadura you can't get more authentic than that. The “White Pearls” part comes from a beautiful painting of a pig that David and his partner Melvin found on their travels in India. The painting can be found adorning the grey wall of the restaurant.
