Tapas Revolution, the Madrid-style all-day tapas bar with a site in Westfield London, is set to open a second branch in Bluewater.

Opening on the week of 14 November, Tapas Revolution Bluewater will include an open-plan kitchen and a pewter bar surrounded by 40 high stalls, along with booths for larger groups and families.

"Bluewater is a great location to open our next Tapas Revolution,” said Tapas Revolution owner and chef Omar Allibhoy. “I'm sure our visitors will experience what it's truly like to eat at an authentic tapas bar.”

Allibhoy, 27, was recently referred to as the ‘Antonio Banderas of cooking’ by Gordon Ramsay. His critically acclaimed Tapas Revolution Westfield, which opened last year, has gone from strength to strength and attracted a host of celebrity diners includijgn Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks.

Real taste of Spain

“It’s always been important for me to show the British public quality but affordable Spanish food and I believe Tapas Revolution achieves just that,” he continued. “Opening a second tapas bar is a great opportunity to continue spreading the word about great Spanish tapas and will bring the real taste of Spain to Kent.”

Key produce used in the restaurant will be sourced from small farms in Spain, including Jamon Iberico, traditional cheeses, chorizo and charcuterie. Award-winning Sommelier Bruno Murciano has joined forces with Allibhoy to select regional Spanish wines to complement the tapas on the menu, which will all be available by the glass.

Dishes at Tapas Revolution Bluewater will include a Spanish-style full-English breakfast (chorizo, patatas bravas, egg and toast), tapas y vinos (tapas with wine), and a selection of authentic bocadillos (sandwiches).

Last year, BigHospitality revealed that Allibhoy had plans to take taps right across the UK​. The new Tapas Revolution restaurant will open in the Plaza at Bluewater, which features a cinema and 10 restaurants including Jamie's Italian and Wahaca. for more information on the restaurant visit www.tapasrevolution.com​.
