There is a Tapas Bar down on Peel Street and it is called La Rambla Tapas Bar. Amongst all the pubs and bars on Peel Street, this one stood out. Upon walking into the bar we were welcomed by friendly staff. High ceilings, bar stools and mirrors on the walls, gave an industrial feel. There was an upstairs section, as well as outside tables. We opted to sit inside this time.
The menu ranged from cured meats to some cheese selection. Tapas originated from Spain and the meals have been designed to share with a group of people. It is a brilliant idea, as you can try a lot of different plates.
I must say that I love Spanish ham, Jamon Serrano, some cured meat that has been aged for approximately 15 months.
Croquettes, a traditional Spanish Tapas dish, filled with potatoes and béchamel. Delicious!!
Tapas is not Tapas without some Spanish meat balls.
Some baby squids, the tube was marinated well and they were ever so tender.
Lamb rack was worth a mention too, rested on a bed of lettuce and topped with mint sauce, I could have these any day.
One of the specials was the cod fish on crunchy bread. I must say it was rather interesting as I have never tried anything like it. We also had the chorizo sausages which was cooked in red wine. It is a dish that you need to enjoy slowly due to the strong flavours of the red jus.
A jug of sangria was the perfect match with all the plates we had. The food was executed nicely. La Rambla Tapas Bar is no regular bar, there seem to be a lot of young professionals there. The service was great, the drinks were great and each of the Tapas were awesome. If you eat one you won't be full, but if you order a bit of everything you will be holding your tummy when you exit that door. I have no hesitation in recommending this bar to anyone who fancies some delicious Tapas with friendly service in a vibrant atmosphere.
