Tapas Revolution (CLOSED)

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This Shoreditch restaurant is from ex-El Pirata Detapas chef, Omar Allibhoy. It's his second London tapas joint, following on from the original over at the Westfield. There's another in Bluewater and he's now branching out into other UK cities, too. He must know what he's doing.
Despite paella for two, Basque rib-eyes and gambas a la plancha, it's mostly about the tapas here. Plates range from toasted almonds and bread with garlic mayo to jamon iberico, boquerones, steamed octopus with smoked paprika and new potatoes, and torreznos fritos – crispy pork belly with a sweet and spicy sauce.
Drinks include Spanish wines and craft beers, a selection of cocktails (including a dedicated gin and tonic menu) and a number of different sherries. Keep an eye out for specials on sangria, too.
