The word tapas is derived from the ancient Latin word ‘tapascoffus’ which translates roughly as ‘mini-plates of tasty Spanish food which are guaranteed to put a smile on your face even though Scotland’s football team are a constant source of disappointment.’
Banish the blues and warm your taste buds with some Spanish culinary sunshine on today’s Big Deal with Torres on Sauchiehall Street.
With its terracotta tiling and ironwork chandeliers, Torres Tapas brings a little bit of Andalucian atmosphere to Sauchiehall Street.
That Spanish flavour extends to the kitchen where the dishes will remind diners of warm, summer holidays in sunnier climes.
Choice of offer
The first option is for one person to enjoy an authentic Spanish lunch of three tapas from the a la carte menu at Torres.
Option two is for two people to enjoy sharing six mouth-watering tapas from the a la carte menu at Tapas plus two desserts.
Popular dishes include much loved favourites such as patatas bravas (piquante potatoes in a tomato sauce); gambas pil pil (prawns cooked in olive oil with garlic and chilli); albondigas (spicy meatballs) and traditional Spanish omelette.
Alternatively, try Torres’ signature dishes like the grilled sardines and Serrano ham croquettes.
The lunch option would make a great alternative to a sandwich at the computer; a tasty break during a shopping trip or a catch-up lunch with friends.
The evening option would be ideal for a pre or post-cinema bite; a romantic meal or simply the start to a big night out on the town.
