Basque-born Nieves Barragán Mohacho is best known as the former head chef Michelin-starred restaurant Barrafina - where she remained faithful to the principles of regional Spanish cooking and using incredible, meticulously sourced, seasonal produce.
Sabor, which means 'flavour' in Spanish, reflects the restaurant’s focus on the flavours of Spain, through the use of traditional ingredients and cooking methods, and a relaxed approach to dining.
The space houses a ground-floor bar and a dining counter surrounding an open kitchen. The menu features regional dishes from across Spain, including those from the Basque country and Catalonia - 'recreating an experience like the tapas bars of Andalucía, the asadors of Castile and the seafood restaurants of Galicia'.
Upstairs, dine at communal tables with a menu of hearty dishes from Galicia and Castile with a menu centered on roast suckling pig cooked in an asador wood-fired oven and octopus cooked in traditional copper pans with olive oil and paprika. Expect honest, rugged and colourful dishes.
Bookings are taken for the asador, while the downstairs bar and restaurant is reserved for walk-ins. Closed on Mondays.
