Orford Saloon – London
Walthamstow Village is located just a few minutes walk from the main overground and underground stations of the local area. With easy access from all parts of London, Orford Saloon is a little taste of Spain, right on your doorstep.
Orford Road is home to a number of fantastic bars and restaurants, in a regenerated part of Walthamstow.
Spanish food has always been a firm favourite with us, so it’s always nice to have a genuine place to eat when we’re away from Ibiza.
Rich in its flavours from the Med, this is the number one go-to spot for your tapas and paella fix!
WHAT WE ORDERED
- Pollo Canario (Skewered Chicken breast in a spicy Canarian sauce)
- Calamares rebozados (squid rings)
- Langostinos a la parrilla (grilled king Prawns)
- Champinones con Chorizo (sautéed mushrooms with chorizo)
- Chuletas de cordero a la parrilla (flame grilled lamb cutlets)
- Pan y alioli (bread and Alioli)
Bread and alioli is very bad for the hips, but tastes amazing on the lips!
It’s also very addictive, and can easily be over-consumed before your starters, mains or tapas arrives.
The squid sizes were very generous indeed!
6 Portions, and cooked exactly how they should be.
The grilled king prawns tasted amazing. Bubbling away in their juices from the freshly cooked heat, they tasted fresh. And again, a pretty generous serving!
The lamb cutlets came away from the bone with ease, and tasted divine.
Beautifully tender and cooked medium-rare.
Chorizo and mushrooms go perfectly together, and this was no exception.
The skewered chicken breast topped the whole experience off wonderfully.
We would thoroughly recommend Orford Saloon if you’re in need of genuine Spanish food, and a vibrant atmosphere.
The area is trendy and eclectic, much like Ibiza in the summer months!
