Tapas in Islington

La Farola offers fantastic tapas in Islington with excellent food, service and atmosphere. Ideally situated on Upper Street, it has a very welcoming and quaint feel. It seems as if other customers agree as it was pretty packed on a Tuesday evening!

The Tapas

La Farola is proud of its locally sourced and fresh seasonal produce. They use quality ingredients from Spain to create their dishes.

We started off with the Chargrilled Sourdough Bread with extra virgin olive oil and ailoi sauce and the Pimientos Padron.

Following this we were ambitious and chose 6 tapas dishes, which was plenty! We had the:

  • Croquetas De Jamon
  • Chorizo Picante a la Sidra
  • Carrillera de Buey (braised ox cheeks)
  • Patatas Fritas (obviously!)
  • Courgette flower stuffed with goat’s cheese (a signature dish at La Farola)
  • Chipirones (crispy fried baby squid).

We absolutely loved the croquetas and the courgette flower, which was also served with honey!

To end the meal we shared the mini churros with chocolate sauce and vanilla custard. This was a perfect way to end the meal.

We sipped on a delicious Amaretto Colada: Amaretto, coconut syrup, lemon and pineapple juice. The Virginia: Puerto de Indias, strawberry’s, fresh lime, lychee juice topped with prosecco was also light and fresh.
