With its crumbling “Pharmacy” shop signage and simple tapas menu, Arbequina keeps its cards close to its chest. But, with a team that comprises Ben Whyles and Rufus Thurston of the city’s lauded Oli’s Thai, Arbequina is bound to exceed even high expectations. Plates are both classic (patatas bravas) and punchy (pork belly with crackling and mojo verde), with thoughtful sourcing of ingredients – olive oil and spices come from local Maroc Deli. For a luxurious lunchtime spent perched atop a banquette or a sultry evening spent lounging in a bay window, Arbequina is your place. Our pick? Rustled up from behind the vintage stainless-steel counter, in all its unctuous, golden glory, is the best tortilla this side of San Sebastián.
