ENGLAND - MANCHESTER - TAPEO & WINE
TAPEO & WINE
This was our first visit to Tapeo & Wine in Deansgate, Manchester as a precursor to the football at Old Trafford.
The restaurant was opened 2016 in this buzzing heart of Manchester by the Mata family (The owners Son, Juan Mata, is currently a Manchester United football player).
There is a bright modern bar and restaurant on the ground floor which looks out to the busy Deansgate, which has another large restaurant bar downstairs, which also has a private room for hire.
The food served is fairly traditional and uses quality produce.
We had a table of eight for a couple of hours at lunchtime and managed to get through the following.
Pan tostado con alioli Toasted ciabatta with alioli mayonnaise dip
Patatas bravas Fried potatoes with spicy brava and alioli sauce
Tortilla Española Classic Spanish potato omelette
Croquetas de jamón Ibérico Ibérico ham croquettes
Croquetas de temera y setas Beef and wild mushroom croquettes
Buñuelos de bacalao con alioli de piparras y crujiente de piel Cod fritters with a crispy skin and piparra pepper
Gambas al ajillo Garlic and chilli king prawns
Huevos fritos de pato con patatas, chorizo y pimientos de Padrón Fried duck eggs with potatoes, Padrón peppers and chorizo
Pulpo con garbanzos y chorizo Roasted octopus with chorizo and chickpea stew

To drink, we had 2 x Bodega Legaris Verdejo 2016 (Rueda) @ £21 1 x Red Sangria Jug @ £15
Service was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.
