Zalata is a slightly off the beaten track neighbourhood bar run by husband & wife team Younes & Viviana. And lucky for me that they happen to be in MY neighbourhood! The modest sized menu is a fusion of Spanish, Moroccan and Peruvian, with a few touches acquired by Younes on his travels, and includes salads, hot and cold meat and fish dishes and desserts.
We enjoyed a varied selection that included really crunchy & tasty chicken croquettes, a deliciously light and citrusy ceviche, and perfectly grilled presa Ibérica. All of which served to bring me back again a few days later to test out some more of the menu – fried chicken bits with fried spiralised potato? Wonderful! Swordfish with a radish slaw? Equally good. I even went so far as to have a dessert (well okay, my friend did) – a dark chocolate cake with a light fresh chestnut sauce.
Excellent friendly service makes you feel right at home. And they’re even open Sundays and Mondays! Already a neighbourhood favourite, as you can tell.
