Shoreditch Opening

Shoreditch Opening


Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy will be bringing a taste of the real Spain to Shoreditch next February, with the opening of his third tapas bar, Tapas Revolution on Bethnal Green Road.

Omar’s latest tapas opening will continue the Spanish food mission that he and his team began with the critically acclaimed Tapas Revolution in Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush), and Tapas Revolution in Bluewater (Kent). 

Tapas Revolution Shoreditch will be Omar’s personal interpretation of the lively and bustling tapas bars in his hometown of Madrid. This contemporary Spanish tapas bar will be open for all-day dining and offer fresh, high quality tapas, using ingredients Omar has sourced from across Spain. 

The menu will be simply divided into four sections; meat, fish, vegetables and egg dishes. Regional and seasonal sharing specials will be displayed on a large board and ‘Paella los Jueves’ will be honoured – a nationwide tradition in Spain of serving paella exclusively once a week on Thursday. For those who just want to stop for a quick drink, there will be a selection of Spanish craft beers, an array of soft drinks and wine from small Spanish producers. The wine will be served in a porrón – a traditional wine glass pitcher with a long spout that’s perfect for sharing. 

Designed by Shoreditch based designers Alexander Waterworth Interiors, the signature bar will be copper topped as found in all the Tapas Revolution tapas bars. The open kitchen will be at the heart of everything and visible from the street. The design will feature fresh, urban and contemporary colours combined with more rustic highlights to create an easy all-day atmosphere. 

Omar Allibhoy comments on the opening of Tapas Revolution, Shoreditch; "Shoreditch is a great location to open our third Tapas Revolution and first standalone site. It’s a great chance to further spread the word about tapas to a new audience and bring an authentic taste of Spain to Shoreditch.” 

Cook with Omar

Cook with Omar



Tapas Revolution and Fragata welcomed the two winners of the "Cook with Omar" competition to Tapas Revolution Westfield. The two lucky budding chefs, Elle Sugden and Eduardo de Felipe, beat many hopefuls and were chosen to participate in a tapas masterclass with Omar. 

Both Eduardo and Elle were thrilled to meet Omar and learn how to cook some of Omar's delicious tapas dishes. After browsing Omar's book, Tapas Revolution Elle and Eduardo chose Bacalao al Pil Pil (cod with garlic sauce), Pollo al Ajillo (garlicky chicken), Chorizo a la Sidra (chorizo with cider) and Tocinillo de Cielo (a Spanish dessert literally translated as 'fat from heaven'). Omar then explained how to create each dish and shared kitchen stories and cooking tips with the winners. After finishing up in the kitchen, Omar and the winners enjoyed a three-course meal, which included the dishes they just learned how to cook. The finished tapas were delicious, and everyone had a great time!


Tapas Revolution have teamed up with Fragata to offer two lucky people the chance to win a tapas masterclass with Omar at the award-winning Tapas Revolution Westfield. 

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is cook your favourite tapas dish using one or more of Fragata’s wide range of delicious products which can be found here: 

The two winners who will be chosen by Omar, will have the opportunity to come to Tapas Revolution Westfield on 31st May and learn from the master of tapas himself! After cooking with Omar in the kitchen, they will then be treated to a three course meal, sampling the dishes they have just been learning how to cook. 


Omar hosted a fantastic evening with Fragata at Tapas Revolution, Westfield.

He cooked up some delicious tapas dishes using Fragata products, which included; Black pudding with green olives, capers and pistachios pate and piri-piri peppers, Pork cheeks braised with olives and capers, and a hot chocolate and Seville orange marmalade fondant.
