Mother’s Day Tapas: Tendido Cuatro
My little man took me out for delicious tapas for Mother’s Day a few weeks ago. Tendido Cuatro, in Parson’s Green, is sister restaurant to the popular Tendido Cero/Cambio de Tercio in Kensington.
We used to live doors away from Tendido Cero when we first moved to London and it remains one of my favourite Spanish tapas in London. This was the first time we were trying Tendido Cuatro and I was wishing for flavour and consistency. Thankfully, they did not disappoint.
The menu suggests an order of 3-4 tapas plates per person which was easily accomplished with a standard list of old favourites. We were briefly tempted by their paella menu but chose to skip it as there was no way we could manage the minimum order of 2 paella portions along with the tapas!
Of course, we started with the obligatory Sangria and Padron peppers to whet the appetite.
My New Year’s ‘no red meat’ resolution broke at Tendido Cuatro as there was no way I was leaving without eating Iberico Jamon and my favourite ham and bechamel croquettas. Absolutely divine, especially after 3 months of no red meat!!!
I loved the unique presentation of the Patatas Bravas. They don’t usually look so elegant.
The grilled squid and pulpo were favourites from Tendido Cero and tasted as good as our memories.
And, finally the dessert. The Crema Catalana was good but oh my churros…YUMMY!
I left Tendido Cuatro full of tapas and broken resolutions. It was a memorable Mother’s Day meal and we will definitely return with room for paella.
Highly recommend Tendido Cuatro for excellent Spanish food in a local neighbourhood setting. Do check it out if you are in the area and don’t skip the sangria, croquettas and churros! 😉
