Calamares and Paella

Las Banderas on the Holborn Viaduct in Farringdon caught my eye as I went for a lunchtime walk in London. As well as a sit down menu, they also sold a lunchtime takeaway box which looked interesting, so I thought the next time I am looking for lunch I might give them a try.

So when I was back in London, I remembered Las Banderas and decided to try them for lunch. The process of ordering wasn’t as simple as I thought it might be. I went with the Calamares and Paella. This was some battered squid rings with a portion of vegetable paella.

I have to say I had high expectations for the food, but alas I was to be disappointed.

The calamares was somewhat rubbery and to be honest lacked any decent flavour. As for the paella, again it was rather bland.

I don’t think I will be going again.
