Food Review: Chiringuito, Bethnal Green.
For years, I’ve been searching for a restaurant in London that does a decent Pan Con Tomate and ay carramba!! Chiringuito in Bethnal Green masters this dish to perfection, topping it with my favourite- manchego cheese which makes it an instant winner.
On a warm day, you can visit Chiringuito and sit on their rooftop terrace. Take in the serenity of the park and views of St John on Bethnal Green church. The contrast between the hustle and bustle of East London to the calm, leafy views of the church is simply incredible!
The food and cocktails are fantastic and you are certain to be welcomed with friendly service. The good news is, knowing the unpredictable weather in London where staying on the rooftop may not be feasible, there’s space indoors to have an equally good time!
I ordered the Pan Con Tomate (of course), roasted Aubergine with vegetables (vegan) and had the delectable cocktails- Il Capitano with Tequila and a surprise cocktail with a whisky base that was not featured on the menu and was a daily special. Absolute gem of a restaurant for the summer!
My passion for food, particularly trying the vegetarian dishes from different cuisines stems from the advantage of living in London. The diversity here is remarkable. You can head to another part of town and try an authentic dish from a country that is 6000 miles away.
