Meet Chancery Lane's saucy Spanish secret

What's not to love about a restaurant that calls itself "the fat one"? This Spanish laneway eatery is a café by day and a tapas bar on Saturday nights. Tucked away on Chancery Lane, it’s a great spot for an evening snack of cold cuts or sardines on toast with a refreshing spritz.

This café is also a favourite among locals for their spot-on coffee and breakfast burrito (it comes with scrambled egg, gypsy ham, chorizo, roasted peppers, mushroom and chipotle aioli). For a muy bien lunch pick up one of El Gordo's bocadillos (Spanish sandwiches) like their Jamon Serrano, manchego and vine-ripened tomato offering and finish with a sweet something like a coffee pannacotta with a salted caramel macaron.
