Finally, I get to try the flagship of the Salt Yard Group, Salt Yard on Goodge Street.
I was in the area checking out furniture (I feel another blog topic forming up) and hadn’t actually had any lunch, but was in between meals – so appropriately, some tapas was just the right food to have.
Sitting at the bar is definitely something seemingly more appropriate when eating tapas, and knowing the most of the menu (how awful) I searched for favourites and dishes that they might have different from their other two branches, Dehesa and the Opera Tavern. Two spotted: chicken cooked with morcilla and black beans… an interesting combination which I haven’t tried before, and pigeon on a bed of lentils & beetroot. So these were two dishes definitely to try. An all time favourite, battered courgette flowers with goats cheese and honey was added to the order, and to starve off the immediate hunger, patatas bravas – in other words chips! So with a glass of my favourite Barbera and my friend with a Spanish Cider, we settled down to a deep discussion on furniture as we waited for our food to arrive.
I have to say the tapas at all the different restaurants of the Salt Yard Group are really creative and I like that each of the three restaurants have their own dishes only served to that restaurant. I could easily sit all evening tasting tapas at any of these restaurants and hope to do that with a good group of friends soon!
