Time Out Says

In the past decade, restaurants, cafés and bars around the world have stampeded towards the “small plate” sharing-style service. In every corner of the globe every nation’s cuisine is being cropped, condensed and squashed onto starter plates for bite-sized dining – fattening the pockets of owners and leaving diners hungrier than when they walked in.

No, we don’t want our fish and chips reducing to an appetiser. No, we don’t want to be forced into sharing. And no, we’re not happy ordering between six and 76 dishes. Finally, when it comes to the simple love of elbow room, we’re at breaking point.

That is until we return to the pioneer of multi-plate banqueting, the original plankster, the only one that can actually pull it off: Spanish tapas.

And here at Sevillie’s, the tables are large enough to host a small village so being just a two we’re content with sitting at opposite ends of the bench shouting how happy we are.

The Wafi Mall spot is a bit tricky to find, but you’ll be rewarded when you do.

And take a bow chefs, because the “con dos pares de huevos” hot tosta is a triumph. Salty, tender beef short-rib meat with mushrooms and caramelised onions, sitting on crunchy toast and topped with perfectly fried quail’s egg is a stand-out dish.

The menu is a mix of classic tapas, salads and paella. Portions are big, tables are bigger still and our smiles at the small plates, for once, are the biggest.
