A new opening that’s arrived to a fair amount of buzz, Sabor lives up to the hype. It’s lively, loud and colourful –

From the chefs chopping and sautéeing in the open kitchen, to the staff cheerily greeting regulars from across the room, lively chatter from the packed dining counter and the smells wafting from the open grill, it’s an experience before you’ve even gotten to the food.

Spanish small plates are what’s up, and the three different dining spaces – the Counter, the upstairs Asador and the bar – each offer a slightly different menu, with freshness, vibrancy and flavour guaranteed throughout. The Counter is where the action happens – take a front row seat and watch ingredients sizzle on the pans as plates are prepared in front you;  piquant piquillo croquetas with zamorano cheese, queso fresco (that’s ‘fresh cheese’) & black truffle brioche and flavoursome black tomato are some of what’s on offer. At first glance the number of veggie options seems fairly limited to just three or four, but ask the team and they’ll happily reel off more dishes that can be easily modified, as well as offering additional items from the bar menu – don’t miss the artichokes and black garlic aioli. Sabor means flavour in Spanish, and this place is true to its word.

Definitely worth a visit if you want somewhere fun and lively for lunch or an after work dinner with a friend. Be warned you’ll have to queue for the Counter – our tip is to get there early, put your name down for dinner and then settle in at the bar. You can graze on snacks and unwind with a glass of fino before your meal.
