Review on Toro Gordo

Toro Gordo, meaning fat bull, is a lively, modern Spanish restaurant and cocktail bar set on King street, the main shopping area in Hammersmith, just a short walk from the underground stations. The driving force behind this venture is Miguel Caffarena, who previously worked at La Bodega Negra in Soho. Drawing on his experience in the film industry and his travels throughout Asia, the interiors have an industrial vibe with exposed piping, rough plastered walls and bare wood. With a background that pulses to an eclectic choice of music, the décor is softened by the addition of Vietnamese lanterns dotted around the room and a Japanese anime wall.

Tapas is the name of the game with all the classic favourites on show including Queso Manchego, Manchego cheese from La Mancha and Tortilla al Toro, Spanish omelette with onion, roasted pepper and potatoes. If meat is your preference, the kitchen can oblige with the like of grilled duck breast with caramelized apples and Valencian orange sauce or Taco de Buey, sliced Scottish sirloin, asparagus, oyster mushrooms and crushed nuts with Asian soy dressing, or fish fans might choose the sliced octopus served on a bed of spiced house guacamole. To finish there's apple tart and churros.

Toro Gordo has a concise wine list to complement the dishes, as well as Asian-flavoured cocktails and their daily made Sangria.
