If some of the papers are to be believed then we are staring down the barrel of the worst winter in fifty years.
Happily, we can always get a reminder of sunnier climes thanks to the Spanish tapas at Cubatas Tapas Bar and Restaurant.
Since launching on Elderslie Street a little under two years ago, the Cubatas team have been busy bunnies.
Winning new friends, pleasing old customers and developing fresh and exciting recipes – they have barely drawn breath.
If you haven’t been yet, this Big Deal is a great way to try out Cubatas Tapas Bar and Restaurant and see just why they are so popular.
Available seven days a week, today’s Big Deal is for a £25 voucher (option one) or a £50 voucher (option two) to spend on tapas from the a la carte menu at Cubatas.
Option one is for a minimum of two people and option two is for a minimum of four people.
With its stripped walls and slinky wooden bar, Cubatas looks very contemporary and that bang-up-to-date vibe continues on their menus.
The a la carte menu has plenty of traditional favourites such as garlic and chilli prawns; tortilla and patatas bravas.
In addition, the kitchen also produces a variety of dishes which take a more innovative approach to tapas.
From beef carpaccio with olives and Manchego cheese to sea bass with cauliflower purée, salmon roe and citrus juices, the kitchen brigade at Cubatas are always ready to surprise.
There are loads of great vegetable dishes. The fried cheese with blueberry jam and the grilled peppers with cheese and basil spring out.
Cubatas has attracted enthusiastic reviews on 5pm where it has a healthy combined score of 4.2/5. These are a couple of the most recent:
‘A wonderful evening had by all. After hearing only good things about Cubatas I was very interested in trying for myself and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to also enjoy live music that accompanied the amazing food perfectly. Each dish was better than the one before and I will definitely be back!.’ Rating 5/5
‘Best Spanish tapas in town. Food was of good quality, they tasted as if they were freshly prepared, unlike other places I have been to. Service was good.’ Rating 5/5
Great night out
Valid until the start of February 2016, this offer would be perfect for a night out with friends or family; it’s a good excuse to dodge cooking and it would also be ideal for a bite before heading to a show at the King’s or The Hydro.
