Tapas Revolution to open fourth site in Birmingham
Tapas Revolution, the Spanish-style tapas restaurant group from Omar Allibhoy, is set to open its fourth site in Birmingham this September.
The all-day tapas bar in Grand Central will feature a copper-topped bar, an open kitchen and marble tables, and will serve a changing menu, from breakfast, which will include pastries, Spanish-style coffee and freshly-squeezed Valencia orange juice, to lunch and dinner options such as a paella or Spanish-style burgers plus classic tapas such as tortilla, croquetas de jamon, calamares or chorizo cooked in Asturian cider.
Desserts will include churros (long, thin doughnuts) prepared to order and fried in specialist "churreria" equipment imported from Spain, and then tossed in cinnamon and sugar and served with a hot chocolate dipping sauce.
The drinks offer will begin with sangria, available between 5pm and 7pm, plus Estrella de Galicia beer on tap and a craft beer menu from every corner of Spain, including one brewed with honey and Mediterranean seawater. There will also be a selection of Spanish-brewed gin and wine from all regions of the Iberian peninsula.
There will also be Spanish sandwiches (bocadillos) and coffee available to take away.
First launched in 2010, Tapas Revolution began at Westfield Shopping Centre in White City and now has sites at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent and in London's Shoreditch.
Acorn Award 2012 winner Allibhoy also won the 2015 Entrepreneur Hall of Fame Award at this year's British Travel & Hospitality Hall of Fame event, presented by The Caterer and Travel Weekly.
Allibhoy said: "Tapas is more than food; it's part of everyday culture. Food and life are always best shared. Tapas Revolution in Grand Central is my version of the lively and bustling tapas bars back home. Birmingham has a great food scene and is increasingly becoming a destination city. I wanted to get involved in the buzz happening here and bring a real taste of Spain to the city centre."
