Sucuk – (pronounced Sujuk) presents chargrilled mildly spicy Turkish sausage with Turkish croutons, heirloom cherry tomatoes and green onion for a truly unique addition to your tapas spread.
Haloumi – drizzled in balsamic glaze and topped with sweet strawberries, the pan fried Halloumi combines sweet and savoury with a generous serving of slightly salty Haloumi cheese.
Sultan’s Delight – this traditional home-style dish incorporates spiced and braised Lamb with a smoky Aubergine Mash. The rustic lamb tapas is deliciously tender with a slight spicy after taste, perfect for warming you up this winter.
Falafel – the lightly spiced falafel from Riad includes spiced yoghurt and sesame seeds throughout for a crunchy dish with a kick. This variation on a favourite means it’s definitely one to try in your next tapas selection.
Grilled Aubergine with Green Chermoula Marinade – the soft and delicate eggplant in this dish has a distinct earthy palate that beautifully balances with the sweetness of the semi sundried tomatoes.
Patatas Bravas – using deep-fried sweet potato in the Patatas Bravas provides a rare take on the traditional favourite. Presented with a generous serving of the beautifully complementary spiced tomato sauce, this makes for a sure fire combination in your tapas sharing plates.
Salt and Pepper Squid –lightly battered salt and pepper squid allows for the perfectly cooked squid to really be appreciated by your palate. Riad’s take on the melt in your mouth Salt and Pepper Squid is served with a creamy and flavourful lemon and lime aioli.
