Say it with us, Urbanites. Tapas.
Your mouth is watering already, isn’t it?
So is ours. But where’s Sydney’s Tapas Holy Grail?
Holy Moly, we think we’ve found it in the brand new Despaña in Glebe.
They haven’t even been open for two months, and they’re already building a list of hungry fans to make established restaurants green at their gills.
Opening at 7am, for those of you who can never quite make it all the way to lunchtime before needing a ‘smackeral of something,’ Despaña’s menu will knock your socks off.
We’re particularly partial to the garden’s heirloom tomatoes with goats curd and smoked paprika (it’s hard to be impressed by tomatoes, but they did it) and the croquettes with chorizo and manchego.
The food is tasty, and the prices are just as delicious. This one is definitely budget-friendly and pretty enough to impress a date (owner Kesra Ceyhan worked for eight months to get it ‘just so’). You can get a sharing menu of five tapas for just $21 per person. Throw in a drink and you’ve got yourself a gran comida for under $30.
You win even more when you try their sangria, which is brewed for four hours and left to sit using fine Latin wine and no sugar. And if you’re feeling extra naughty, splurge on the fluffy churros with chocolate sauce or the catalan cream.
Whatever you do, bring someone with an iPhone – you’re going to be ‘that guy’ instagramming your date.
Now, say it again: Tapas. Hungry yet?
