Tapas Revolution Estrella Galicia Supper Club, Bath

If you live in Bath and like Tapas, you've probably heard of Tapas Revolution. Maybe you have even read our review from the last time we were there (if not - click here) 🍴

This time, we were kindly invited by the team at Tapas Revolution to one of their Estrella Galicia 'secret' supper clubs. In other words, an amazing food and beer tasting. 

Instead of having separate tables, we were all sat down on a long table which meant nice chats with our fellow supper club diners. We luckily were sat right across the general manager of Tapas Revolution, so we got to ask lots of questions. 

The founder of Tapas Revolution, Omar Allibhoy, who is also a chef and writer of the cooking book 'Spanish made simple', presented the night's menu to us. This was a lovely touch as we got so much information about the origin and history of both the ingredients and the recipes. All of them had top-notch ingredients imported straight from Spain. 

We tasted a variety of different ales, and our favourite was the 1906 reserva especial beer. 

The jamon serrano was sooo melty in the mouth. The pigs that the ham is made from are chestnut-fed in Galicia, a region in the north west of Spain. 

The smoked chorizo stewed in Estrella Galicia beer was so so good. We loved that it was stewed in beer - it was something a little bit different. 

The fried padron peppers have a very particular taste - they're fried sweet green peppers that are a little bit bitter. 

The tortilla de patatas was a good old omelette with eggs potatoes and onions - a classic Spanish dish (not pictured). 

The pulpo a la gallega (Galician octopus dish) was amazing. Even though we're not massive fans of octopus, there was soemthing great about this dish - and it's seasoning (paprika and something citrusy) made it refined and lovely.

The Galician tetilla cheese gratin over toast drizzled with honey (not pictured) was basically just toast and cheese but it was okay! 

The empana galena with tuna and peppers was great. 

For dessert, we had the showstopper of the evening. It was a chocolate fondant made with black coupage beer (a flavourful mild ale). It was amazing. 

It had fondant in the middle, soft sides and a slightly bitter yet very noticeable aftertaste. It was a really generous portion and we still wanted more, it was that good. 

Overall, it was a really great experience and we really appreciated that Omar explained the menu to us before we got started. Not only did we learn about the food, but also about Spain in general. Our favourite dishes were definitely the jamon iberico and the chocolate fondant 🤤.

As a side note, the decoration is awesome. There's a tree in the middle of the room, lots of hanging hams and sausages, and an overall nice atmosphere somewhere between a bar and a restaurant. 

Thank you Tapas Revolution for inviting us to this great evening! We will be dreaming about the chocolate fondant forever now. If you have an opportunity to go to one of Tapas Revolution's supper clubs, we would highly recommend it. For more supper club dates at Tapas Revolution, please click here 👈🏼.
