Harden's says

A spin-off of Exmouth Market's “truly scrumptious” Moorish tapas bar (itself a little sister to long-time Harden's survey favourite Moro) comes to Hoxton. The new site, just a stone's throw from Columbia Road Flower Market, will see Moro head chef Marianna Love head-up the kitchen alongside founder Sam Clark.

The “lovely Moorish/Spanish sharing food” at the little sister of Sam & Sam Clark’s Moro next door in Exmouth Market – and also its spin-off in Hackney Road – makes them “a go-to place when you don’t know where to go”: “an all-round crowd-pleaser, good for meat and non-meat- eaters alike”.

“The food is always a delight” at “the little brother of (and much cheaper than) Moro”, nearby in Exmouth Market, which serves “excellent authentic tapas dishes washed down with delicious Spanish wine” or a “half-bottle of sherry”. It’s a notably “well run joint”, with “staff who know their grub” and are “very welcoming without being fussy”. Top Tip – “arrive early to nab one of their two outdoor tables on the paved street and imagine yourself in Spain as you watch life going by”.

“Keep the tapas coming”“top Spanish food”, with North African inflections – say fans of this little bar in Exmouth Market, which “still holds its own against its larger siblings” – the original Moro a few doors away, and the Hackney Morito. Some punters rate it even higher: “why go to Moro when Morito is just as good and cheaper?”. “The new extension at the back makes it easier to get a table”, and “they take young kids in their stride”.

“Great vibe, great food” – Moro’s “busy”, “tightly packed” spin-off, a few doors away along Exmouth Market, combines Spanish and North African tastes into “terrific” tapas dishes, served in a “laid back” fashion. A second, slightly larger Morito on Hackney Road, not far from Columbia Road flower market, wins equally enthusiastic approval.
