    Ajo blanco at Copita

    £3.95, Copita, 26 D'Arblay Street, W1F 8EP

    On a second visit you may not see any of the same dishes as on your first, but the ajo blanco is usually a mainstay at this congenial Soho tapas bar. One of the many tiny but thrilling dishes here, this Andalucian white soup is made from almonds with a hint of garlic (ajo). The portion size is barely enough to fill an egg-cup, but the flavours transported us right back to Seville. Sup it with a glass of bone-dry sherry.
