I was staying in London and thinking about going out to eat, I was reminded of a conversation with a colleague a few weeks back who had recommended Reineta in Dickens Yard in Ealing.
Reineta is a Spanish cafe and restaurant.I looked at the dinner menu on their website and the different tapas that were on offer.
I had already made my choice of tapas.
I liked the sound of the mushrooms casserole, made from wild mushrooms with shallots, parsley and mushroom cream and manchego cheese.
I also decided I would have the burned butternut squash with fresh cheese and black truffle.
I thought I would also have the mixed peppers, sliced potatoes and marinated octopus with “choricero” pepper.
You can imagine my disappointment when I went there to find it was in fact closed. It was only open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I wasn’t in London on any of those days…
So no tapas for me.
