The real taste of Spain is coming to Newcastle on the 13th of February 2017 with our biggest opening yet - Tapas Revolution, Eldon Square! Our sixth home, as usual, will feature dishes cooked with the finest ingredients sourced from small artisan producers in Spain, all freshly prepared, served alongside premium Gin Tonics, in the traditional Copa de Balón (balloon glass) and an extensive Spanish inspired cocktail list created in collaboration with the award winning Cocktail Trading Co.
There’s a great restaurant and bar scene in Newcastle and we can’t wait to get involved in the buzz happening there and bring a little Spanish twist to the city. Tapas Revolution in Eldon Square is Omar's version of the lively and bustling tapas bars in Madrid, Barcelona and Seville. We can’t wait to open our doors!
Open all day, you can expect the menu to guide you on a culinary adventure across Spain, from breakfast in Barcelona to dinner in Seville. The menu is simply divided into fish, meat and vegetable sections, complemented with the best Spain has to offer in terms of charcuterie and our famous Jamón Iberico, hand carved to order by a skilled maestro jamonero. Expect all the classics, such as tortilla, croquetas de jamón, calamares, chorizo cooked in Asturian cider and freshly-made Churros. There will also be ‘Platos’, large tapas dishes to share including Txuléton de ternera – Rib eye and Sirloin steak from 10 year old cows in the Basque region of Spain, grass fed and aged for 40 days giving a great depth of flavour.
For those who just want to stop for a quick drink, we have collaborated with the award winning Cocktail Trading Co to create a new cocktail menu of classics with a Spanish twist. Highlights include Blood Orange & Cherry Royal, a blend of Larios gin, blood orange, aguardiente de cerezas, pimento dram shaken with lemon and topped with Cava and the Espresso Blanco Martini made with Veterano brandy shaken with espresso, milk, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua and Frangelico.
Also on the Drinks Menu is a selection of Spanish craft beers, including an exclusive in bringing Palax, the famous Rioja region’s only draught craft beer to the UK and a monthly rotating draft beer from Wylam Brewery. There is an array of soft drinks and wine from a number of small Spanish producers. Wine is served Catalonian style with a porrón – a traditional wine glass pitcher with a long spout that’s perfect for sharing and is used to bring extra air into each sip. Honouring Spain’s position as the biggest consumer of Gin and Tonics in Europe, we also serve a range of premium ‘Gin Tonics’ as well as the only exclusively Spanish Gin menu in the country.
