Cigala, Conduit St, London


Cigala, Conduit St, London is a relaxed and cosy ambiance and you will immediately feel this as soon as you settle in. What Cigala lacks in grandeur they make up in quality of their food and service.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that I am an expert when it comes to Spanish cuisine, but accompanied by a friend who is an epicure when it comes to the Spaniards way of dining. I knew I was in safe company.

For starters, we had the classic Croquetas de jamón, Pastel de bacalao, Patatas bravas and Gambas al ajilo. While it should be noted that everything we ordered was delectable the distinctive flavour of the Croquetas de jamón separates it from other Spanish restaurants with it’s rich and creamy taste, the ample jam enclosed simply made it in my opinion one the best Croquetas de jamón London has on offer.

For main course we went for the classic Paella de pollo with chorizo. When you order this dish you are required to wait for 30 minutes, it is advisable that you order another plate, starter or one of Cigala’s selected wines.

When this does arrive, this won’t disappoint. The texture and combinations of the rice is well fused and perfectly seasoned. The chicken skin had a crispy texture to it which made every single bite a delight the only downside to this dish was the crystal salt added to the skin. It was a saline morsel!

We’ve had our fair share of Spanish dishes and restaurants across London (countless hours and money spent in Portobello Market) and I would strongly recommend Cigala for its near to authentic experience.
