Spanish TV chef Omar Allibhoy is bringing a taste of Spain to Bath in June with the opening of his seventh tapas bar.
Tapas Revolution is opening in Southgate, Bath on 1 June.
Omar Allibhoy is a man on a mission to bring authentic tapas to the UK, and will be serving up dishes cooked with the finest ingredients sourced from small artisan producers in Spain alongside premium gin and 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.
Omar’s menu will take inspiration from his family’s recipes that he grew up with and Spain’s culinary culture of sharing, socialising and eating. Omar says: “Bath is a beautiful city and we’re really excited to be opening a tapas bar here. Tapas Revolution is based on the lively and bustling tapas bars in Madrid, Barcelona and Seville, and I’m looking forward to bringing my version to Bath. Tapas is more than food, it’s part of our everyday culture: food and life are always best shared.”
Madrid born Omar has cooked for a whole host of celebrity and royal diners, including Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, Antonio Banderas, Tom Hanks, Bill Nighy and Prince William. Alongside his six tapas bars, Omar has also written two cookbooks ‘Tapas Revolution’ and ‘Spanish Made Simple’ and made numerous TV appearances including Saturday Kitchen, Masterchef, The One Show, Sunday Brunch and This Morning.
Just like typical Spanish tapas bars, Tapas Revolution will be open all day; the menu guides diners 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 their famous Jamon Iberico, hand carved to order by a skilled maestro jamonero.
Expect all the classics, such as tortilla, croquetas de jamon, calamares, chorizo cooked in Asturian cider and freshly-made Churros.
Tapas Revolution in SouthGate will be open from 1 June. Opening times: Monday – Saturday, 9am – 11pm and Sunday, 10am – 10pm.
