The Little Taperia

Tooting Borders

The team behind award-winning drinking den The Little Bar has spread its wings to the other side of Tooting , bringing a burst of vibrant Spanish flavour to the curry mile. Although there is a bar – serving knock-out Negronis, local craft brews and Aperol Spritz – the emphasis in this buzzy joint is very much on food.

And what food… Not a single dish disappointed on our recent visit, from simple pan con tomate (at a very wallet-friendly £2.50) and courgette tortilla with a deliciously melting middle to stuffed baby squid on pisto or chubby chorizo bombs simmered in red wine. We seriously swooned for the photogenic morcilla Scotch egg with a perfectly soft-yolked quail's egg: destined to be the star of Instagram accounts right across SW17. Tapas staples from jamon to patatas bravas are also on offer, backed by a Spanish wine list with some great sherries, including en rama manzanilla.

As at Little Bar, you'll a big welcome in a bijou space; yes, it's small, but with seating at both the bar and kitchen, plus no reservations, you shouldn't have to wait too long for a table.
