La Chalá

Updated March 2015

la chalaLet’s hope it’s third time lucky for La Chalá, the third bar to open in this location in the past three years. But I think it has staying power with its Latin-Iberian fusion menu, cheerful decor and attentive service, along with a spacious terrace that actually has more seating than the bar itself.

The menu is divided into “from here” and “from there” sections, as well as some gourmet and home-style dishes. Be sure to try the croquetas (and that’s not something you’ll hear me say often) which come as a selection of five different flavours. I also really liked their serranito, though I have to say one of my favourite dishes was a simple plate of Apolonio cheese served drizzled with olive oil and with some grapes and cashews on the side. Also recommended: the little meatballs and Iberian stir-fry. Nice wines by the glass at reasonable prices.
