The Big Deal team has eaten more than its fair share of tapas. Much more.
Delightful as they are, they don’t tell the whole story of Spanish food.
Book in for this Big Deal with the award-winning Iggs and enjoy a spectacular, six course tasting menu of authentic, Spanish specialities.
There is even the option to add in matched wines, selected by the sommelier, to accompany each course.
If you have ever thought that Spanish food is so much more than patatas bravas then this gastronomic experience will provide the most delicious of proofs.
Launched by Iggy Campos in 1989, Iggs is a stylish, Spanish restaurant just off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh’s Old Town. It has held a coveted AA Rosette for many years.
Decorated in a sleek, contemporary style, it offers precise, modern Spanish cooking using both imported, Spanish ingredients and the finest, seasonal, Scottish ingredients.
Available Monday to Saturday, for lunch or dinner, this Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a tremendous, six course tasting menu at Iggs.
Option two adds a carefully matched glass of Spanish wine to each dish. Iggy takes his wine list very seriously and it has been endorsed by the AA among others.
If you take option two, then you can be sure of drinking a wine which enhances and compliments every course of your meal.
This is the fabulous tasting menu which will be served to diners:
Grilled langoustines with tarragon butter, greens and a herbal dressing
Calasparra rice with piquillo peppers, wild mushrooms and manchego foam
