As I have a tendency to do, I have just been treated to a delicious meal out, courtesy of my amazing boyfriend, and it was so yummy I just had to write about it! Those that followed my old blog will know that this happens all the time, so if you’re expecting a sports blog post then come back again very soon when I’ll most likely have a post about the upcoming Premiership season for you to enjoy!
Anyway, back to my meal. My boyfriend is a huge tapas fan. We’ve tried many MANY tapas restaurants in London and around the UK, and we both agreed where to get the best tapas in London. However, we recently visited our favourite restaurant and the owner told us that he also owns other tapas restaurants London.
Because we’ve eaten at Drakes Tabanco so many times, we wanted to give one of the other restaurants a try so my boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Copita in Soho. I can tell you that I was NOT disappointed!
Sometimes I wonder how restaurant owners can create different atmospheres in different restaurants. All too often, each restaurant looks like the next and there isn’t really anything different between one and the other. The thing that struck me most about Copita was how different it was than Drakes Tabanco. The atmosphere, the furnishings and the menu were very different indeed. Whereas Drakes in more traditional and serves cask sherry, Copita feels more vibrant and modern. Perhaps this is partially due to it’s location.
The standards we expect were still maintained though, with friendly service and delicious food. Their menu changes daily, and it is a “fresh” menu rather than a set one. Sliced ham, potato bravas and cheese platter were all delicious, but the menu may look very different if you ever visit!
This is some of the tastiest and freshest tasting tapas London (or anywhere in the UK for that matter) has to offer. I can’t decide if I prefer it to Drakes, we’ve had so many happy times in there, but it’s certainly as good as and we will certainly be dining in there again soon.
