Summary

“You can feel Nuno Medes’s passion for the food” at his “casual taberna-style” yearling in Spitalfields Market, which is “equally suited to a drop in for a pastel de nata and a coffee, as for a full meal”. The “unfussy” and “nostalgic” Portuguese dishes “use lots of obscure ingredients”, but are “brilliantly successful”, while “friendly, well-informed staff are keen to assist with selections”. Top Menu Tip – “fish in a tin is the highlight”.

Summary

A surprisingly low-key opening in a unit in Spitalfields Market from celeb chef du jour Nuno Mendes (Chiltern Firehouse, Viajante); clearly a passion-project, the focus is offbeat tapas from the chef’s Portuguese homeland, which most (if not quite all) reports say is “superb”. Top Menu Tip – “you must try the fish in a tin”.

"Full marks for originality if you are after a new type of tapas but overall doesn't live up to expectations."
