Winter may be on its wicked way but luckily a new restaurant coming to Liverpool is bringing a slice of the sunshine with it. Heading to Queen Square at the beginning of November, is a new tapas bar and restaurant by the Spanish restaurant group, Tapas Revolution.
While the menu stays true to traditional, authentic tapas, the new look and concept is reminiscent of airy, modern day Barcelona or Ibiza. The venue will feature an improved Spanish-style terrace for over 100 people to drink and dine al-fresco at, meaning there’s no need to book a flight to experience the real deal.
The restaurant will be serving traditional tapas favourites including paellas packed full of flavour and vegans can enjoy calabaza asada- roasted butternut squash served with chickpeas, oyster mushrooms, piquillo peppers, and baby spinach.
There will also be a range of larger sharing plates and main courses, including 12-hour slow-roasted Iberian pork shank served with piquillo peppers and green beans; marinated chicken in a lemon and garlic glaze, skewered with onion and mix peppers and served with garlic crushed potatoes.
Tapas Revolution’s menu will also feature Spanish breads with alioli, extra virgin olive oil and sherry balsamic for dipping; as well as dry-aged Serrano ham, and Spanish Manchego cheese to nibble on. You can then tuck into tapas dishes including ham and béchamel croquettes; chorizo roasted with cider; Spanish-style meatballs; crispy slow-cooked pork belly with a sweet and spicy sauce; patatas bravas; tiger prawns with garlic and parsley oil cooked in the traditional terracotta pot; calamari with alioli and lemon; and sliced Galician octopus layered on baby new potatoes, dressed with sweet smoked paprika and extra virgin olive oil.
But make sure to save room for Tapas Revolution’s tempting desserts like their crispy Spanish churros tossed in cinnamon sugar, served with hot dipping chocolate, or the traditional Basque cheesecake served with a red berry compote. Plus you can opt for a delicious slice of traditional almond cake served warm with vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce or their silky smooth chocolate fondant with a hint of orange, served with clotted cream.
In addition, Tapas Revolution will be offering a wide range of Spanish drinks, so you’ll find a whole range of sangria served both by the class and carafe; choose from traditional, lemonade and saffron spritz, white berry sangria, sparkling sangria, blood orange rose sangria and skinny sangria that’s made with 30% less sugar & red wine. There’s also a selection of gin and tonics, cocktails, wines (including sparkling wines from the Cava region of Spain), beers, spirits, soft drinks, and coffees.
