Review on Tinto Didsbury
Tinto was launched in August 2017 in the former premises of the Chalk Bar and Grill in the upmarket town of Didsbury in Greater Manchester. Occupying a prominent position on bustling Wilmslow Road with a triple aspect frontage, it has the advantage of a terrace for al fresco dining or drinking, when the weather is warm. The duo behind the Asador restaurant which specialises in cooking in a charcoal oven is husband and wife team, Ignacio Perez-Barreiro and Natalia Esquerdo-Girbes. Ignacio, more commonly known as Nacio trained in Spain before moving to the UK, where he held the position of Executive chef at La Tasca's first restaurant in Manchester's Deansgate.
The kitchen deals in authentic Spanish dishes with many ingredients imported directly from Spain. Diners can opt for a series of tapas dishes such as braised pork cheeks or hake in a rich garlic sauce, or follow the traditional route of a starter followed by a main course. Paellas are also a popular choice such as there traditional paella Valenciana with chicken and rabbit on the bone, or choose the Paletillade Cordero Lechal, slow charcoal roasted Menorcan milk fed lamb. Desserts stay close to home witness a caramelised warm rice pudding or eggy bread the Tinto way, soaked in rosé wine.
There's a carefully compiled wine list and a tasty selection of cocktails such as Tinto Sangría and Agua de Valencia.
