Patatas bravas, paella, pintxos and tapas. Yep, the gangs all here at Lola Cocina, where you can dine one toothpicked dish at a time, sangria in hand.
EatClub is welcoming this Crow’s Nest Spanish restaurant and all of its hallmarks of Iberian food to the platform. Lola Cocina takes a loose approach to the Spanish cuisine in its breakfast and lunch dishes, and a more faithful approach to the classics from around the Iberian peninsula for the tapas-rich dinner menu. The results? Delicioso.Inside, it’s friendly, warm and heavy on character – with exposed bricks and a dazzling mural of a flamenco dancer. It’s silly not to order a jug of sangria straight away for the table if you’re dining at lunch or dinner. As well as tapas such as Albonbigas con Romesco (meatballs stuffed with manchego) and Calamares Al Pimenton (paprika-salted calamari), there are burgers available for lunch – each laden with saucy Spanish touches. Sides of chorizo and jamón add Spanish flair to Aussie brekkie classics and there are Spanish omelettes on the menu, too.
It’s dealers choice if you order the Pintxos of the Day at dinnertime – which will see you trying three chef-selected pintxos. Sharing boards are always a wise order: the Mar y Tierra is a board filled with Serrano ham, olives, pickles, halloumi, grilled prawns, chorizo, rocket and toasted olive baguette. And then there’s the Paella which is made either traditionally (with seafood), as a meaty medley (with chorizo and chicken), or for the vegetarians there’s one with mushrooms and pungent strips of sweet red peppers.Lola Cocina is the perfect place to celebrate and catch up with loved ones, with an adventurous – but not overly challenging – wine list full of Spanish and local wines. Dessert is easy: order the Churros con Chocolate and get those cinnamon-sugared churros dripping with chocolate!
