Bocadillo is a little like a superhero.
By day, the Sauchiehall Street venue is a friendly sandwich and coffee bar.
At night, it becomes Bocadillo Bistro – an enticing neighbourhood hangout serving super interesting tapas.
Today’s Big Deal is a great chance to try out the intriguing offers at Bocadillo Bistro in Charing Cross.
The deal is for one person to enjoy two tapas, a dessert and a glass of wine.
It’s perfect for a quick dinner after work and would be ideal for a bite before a show at the nearby King’s Theatre or a gig at The Hydro.
The kitchen at Bocadillo Bistro serves an adventurous and evolving range of tapas which venture far beyond the usual meatballs, tortilla and patatas bravas.
Prime Scottish ingredients take pride of place in many of them.
Eye-catching choices include king scallops with Stornoway black pudding on a bed of spiced apple purée and the glazed short rib of beef with parsnip mash, crispy onions and port jus.
The vegetarian dishes have just as much wow factor. Choices include the wild garlic and mushroom ravioli with white wine and tarragon cream or the foraged mushroom and caramelised onion tart with sundried tomato pesto.
Bocadillo’s evening bistro has only been running for a few months but is already attracting enthusiastic reviews on its 5pm page. This one was posted at the beginning of April:
‘Great find… came across this place doing Scottish tapas, so decided to give it a try. Lovely little place with friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere… Every dish was delicious and really well presented. I look forward to coming back and trying more from the menu!’ Rating 4.6/5
Delicious tapas with a glass of wine. A tutored wine tasting with canapés and a bottle to take home.
If either of them sound like a great way to spend an evening then snap up today’s Big Deal with Bocadillo Bistro.
