I recently went to Shepherds Bush shopping mall to buy a suit. I bought a grey suit (crazy!?!). Afterwards I went to Tapas Revolution in Shepherds Bush for Tapas (obviously). The creator had been on TV shows such as Sunday Brunch so we thought we’d give it a go.
Chorizo in Red wine
Meatballs in a tomato sauce
Bread with Parma ham
The food was tasty but nothing overly special. Good Tapas but I wouldn’t queue for it!
Hop from Spain to France for this delicious cassoulet. It is rather tasty. Enjoy.
