With restaurants open again, at least we can travel with our tastebuds: tipsters – particularly from London this week – recommend flavours from Mexico to Malaysia
Bar San Juan in the trendy Manchester neighbourhood of Chorlton does without doubt the best tapas I have eaten outside Spain. The little restaurant’s immense popularity and lack of tables means you have to book well in advance, but it’s worth the wait. The menu is small but refined: their saquitos de cordero (little lamb parcels) and pisto con queso de cabra (vegetables with goat’s cheese) are both indescribably good. The interior decor with flamenco posters adds to the experience and a jug of the homemade sangria can transport you to Andalucía even on the most dreary of Mancunian days.
