Pretending I’m in Spain with Tapas Revolution *

As part of my 12in12 travels I don’t actually get to visit Spain until August on a hen do, and I must admit I can’t wait (as it will be my fourth year going to Barcelona!) and more so because Tapas and Sangria are my fave food a drink for lyf.

Luckily Tapas Revolution came along to cheer me up with a little shindig to celebrate them turning two in their Meadowhall, Sheffield branch! I can’t believe how time has flown by as it doesn’t seem that long ago I was celebrating them opening.

You’ll know I’ve have been a fan of the restaurant since it opened and looking back we probably visit at least every other month which is pretty impressive I think! To celebrate their birthday they’ve had a makeover introducing a terrace feel which is giving me all the Spanish Summer vibes which I’m needing badly! They’ve also introduced a new Sangria menu with 5 types of Sangria on it- of course ya gal tried most of them to give you the lowdown:

NEW FAVE – Sparkling Tropical Sangria- whenever me and Luke go to Barca we get love drunk on cava Sangria, it’s fast working and tastes so refreshing.

What I’m Wearing:

  • Top: New Look (Sale £3) similar at ASOS
  • Skirt: Everything £5 (£5 shock!!) similar at EBay

Blood orange rose Sangria tasted pretttty good too, like a mix between the above and the traditional Sangria. Not quite as heavy as the traditional type and still refreshing I found. I didn’t try the berries one-so that’s a reason to go back right?

We then got to try alllllll the menu classics and the food did not stop coming! We were sat with Emma and Ed, who were fab companions and who hadn’t tried Tapas Revolution before so it was really interesting to see how people found it for the first time!

Omar Allibhoy the chef who started the whole Tapas Revolution was also there to celebrate with us, he was his fab self as always and it was great to see him really taking interest in Emma as she is a coeliac and he wanted to understand more about what she does/can and doesn’t/can’t eat. It was refreshing to see him take an interest and I hope that we will see more dishes catering to that as time goes on. (I won’t lie it did mean more bread for us 3 which was a massive win!)

After all the wonderful Spanish food, great company and of course flowing sangria I felt like I’d had a Spanish Sojourn , I think it helped that it was the second warmest day of the year so far too! As always I highly recommend you try Tapas Revolution if you’re in Meadowhall or near one of its other branches as it never fails to disappoint- oh and make sure you get some churros to go too won’t you!?

*Thanks to Omar and the Tapas Rev team for having us as guests. As always words and opinions are my own! And you know I’m high-key obsessed with this place so I speak the truth!
