Cafe Andaluz in Edinburgh's George street is something that I've wanted to try since it's opening but never managed to until now. After I booked us a table I couldn't stop thinking about our trip to Barcelona couple of years ago in and the yummy tapas that we ate there.
On a Sunday night they do a special deal, three tapas of your choice and a dessert for £14.95 which is what we had. With great difficulty we ended up ordering the following...
Roasted sweet potato, parsnip and chickpea mixed with chopped parsley and coriander, topped with a tahini dressing.
Creamy soft cheese, fried in breadcrumbs and served with caramelized onion chutney and
pan fried sliced chicken breast marinated in paprika, lemon and coriander, served with chili yogurt.
Two portions of chorizo and black pudding sauteed in spicy tomato.
Grilled goats cheese with Seville orange and chili marmalade.
And finished with caramel cheesecake and raspberry pavlova.
Needless to say, we were well stuffed after all that food! It was like 'fast food tapas', all our food was in the table in less than five minutes from ordering and tasted like not a huge amount of effort was put into the cooking. But still, I would probably go back. This would be a fun place to go with a big crowd and just order everything, so until next time...
real Spanish atmosphere
