Subsolo, Sydney

Subsolo can be found on King Street, a basement restaurant right next to Element, French Bistro. An old colleague who I went to lunch with at Element suggested that I should try Subsolo – Spanish tapas and wine bar. The restaurant is quite slick – dark and moody, splashes of red everywhere, and had that ‘Spanish’ feel to it!

The menu is quite extensive different types of tapas which can be ordered in either entree or main size, paela, charcoal spit-roasted espetadas and dessert. There is also a degustation menu 6 courses for $65 per person or 7 courses for $75 per person.

I was catching up with the lovely S, we both like tapas so suggested this place. We started with patatas bravas ($10), served in a terra cotta dish, it was a generous servings! Tender succulent potatoes topped with some tomato dish, it was a great start. (forgot to take a photo of this dish!)

Paprika salt and pepper squid with saffron mayonnaise ($14 / $21) – I can never say no to salt and pepper squid. Squid was wonderfully cooked, my only gripe, not enough paprika, but the saffron mayonnaise was a wonderful complement.

The Rodriguez bros pork chorizo with apple and cucumber yogurt ($17 / $24) was excellent. I think S really enjoyed it, and I love the freshness and creaminess of the apple and cucumber yogurt.

The field mushrooms filled with pistachio and currant couscous ($14 / $21) were incredibly filling! Generous serving, it was incredibly tasty and I love the sweetness form the currant.

The restaurant was quiet when we went, S and I sat for almost four hours just chatting and laughing, it was lovely to catch up with you.

Great venue for lunch or dinner, or even gathering with friends.
