Spanish Food at Pix Bar


In my London Eats World blog series, I'm eating my way around the world without leaving London and this week it's Spanish food at Pix Bar.

London Eats World: Spain.

If I'm totally honest, Spanish food in general is not at the top of my favourite food list. Except for pinchos. I could eat those pretty much any time. A pincho or pintxo in Basque is like tapas, traditionally eaten in the north of Spain. The difference with 'normal' Spanish tapas is that they are served on a piece of bread and spiked with a skewer. Here in London you can eat them at Pix Bar.

At Pix Bar the atmosphere is cosy with lots of high tables along the bar and an intimate area in the back. The service is of the help-yourself kind. A variety of Spanish wines, bubbles and beers can be ordered at the bar. That same bar is literally covered with plates of pintxos that seem to be coming out of the kitchen in a steady flow whenever a plate is empty.

When I was there I feasted on tasty portions of ham croquetas, spanish tortilla, serrano ham, patatas bravas, chorizo with manchego cheese and a garlicky aubergine mousse. And to make my meal even more Basque, I opted for a glass of txakoli wine which is slightly sparkling and produced in the north of Spain.

At Pix Bar you can eat as many pintxos as you want; you just need to keep hold of the skewers which are used to determine the price of your bill. A very trusting system if you ask me, with a lot of room for disappearing skewers.
