Occupying the Big Sur space on Staunton Street, Majo is a new venue opened by the same group (Woolly Pig Hong Kong) behind restaurants such as Hue and gastro-pub Grain. The new Spanish bodega-inspired restaurant features indoor and outdoor seating, which welcomes four-legged friends, to take diners from lunch to alfresco happy hour to dinner and beyond. Expect easy-going Spanish food including tapas and cold cuts paired with signature tipples. Menu highlights include Valencia-style codfish croquette with squid ink aioli ($120), Spanish octopus with potato and green and red Majo sauce ($160), Picaña steak ($390), Paella Valenciana ($150 per person) with chicken, rabbit, snails and beans, among many more.
Meanwhile, Majo’s bar offers a variety of sangria on tap, ranging from red wine, white wine, and even rose sangria for $65 a glass or $275 a jug. There are also Spanish vermouths and cocktails inspired by Spanish liqueurs and flavours to try. We’ve got our eyes on The Adonis ($80), made with Amontillado, vermouth, and orange bitters, as well as the Majo Martini ($110), blending G'Vine Floraison, Amontillado, and dry vermouth, before it's finished with a Gilda skewer of pickled onion, anchovy and olive for the perfect savoury hit.
