Barrafina Adelaide Street

So yes, on paper it’s a pain, you have to queue for hours or accept to dine at 17:30, all that to finish clustered along the bar… But do. Barrafina is the perfect tapas bar magic formula. Working for a quick drink and tapas para picar standing or a full dining feast, cocooned by the so nice Spanish waiters while peaking in the kitchen.

The original spread to Adelaide Street in 2012, with an extra private dining room. Same classic red leather stools and gleaming marble bar, from where you can enjoy the classic comfy pan con tomate, oozing tortilla and ace stuffed courgette flowers, but also a few specials such as prawn and bonito carpaccio, suckling pig’s ears or doughnuts and chocolate sauce. Cheered by an unfiltered house manzanilla or a Pares Balta Cava Brut, por favor.
