Authentic Andalusian & Spanish fare
The head chef at Tapa is from Seville and passionate about Spanish and Andalusian food and the freshness and authenticity of ingredients used in the kitchen. Some popular tapas dishes at the restaurant include the homemade oxtail croquettes (buñuelos de rabo del toro); the battered hake fillet with a pea & garlic salsa (fritura de merluza); and their aubergine crisps drizzled with honey (berenjenas con miel).
Other traditional favourites often on the menu are the slow cooked beef & pork meatballs (albondigas a la jardinera); the Spanish potato & onion omelette with spinach & melted Manchego cheese (tortilla con espinacas); and chorizo sausage girdled with homemade tomato salsa (chorizo a la plancha).
