Amidst the popular and varied Shore dining quarter, Tapa remains a popular choice with locals and those who’ve sought it out and made it a favourite under their own steam. Sevillan chef Paco Martin Romano offers a choice of food which is authentic and significantly removed from the familiar choices at a chain tapas bar. Try, for example, the chistorra (a form of chorizo) hot dog served with mustard salsa, the Iberian pig cheeks braised in red wine or the Galician octopus in orange and pine nut vinaigrette, washed down with one of an impressively-chosen range of red and white Spanish wines.
When it comes to European cuisine, Spanish food lurks somewhere behind Italian and French in the popular consciousness. It's a state of affairs that we think is highly unfair, so we're pleased to highlight some of Edinburgh's best restaurants serving dishes from the Iberian peninsula.
