The Verdict

Get transported to the balmy nights of Spain and South America with this new sizzling hot (permanent) pop-up. Housed in the Woodworks cafe, this daytime eatery is transformed into a slick restaurant come dusk. In charge is former Beirut, Mexico and Oaken executive chef Javier Carmono, whose vibrant and weekly changing menu is a reflection of his Spanish and Mexican roots. These are complex dishes that discover new ingredients, and you can taste the passion for food and culture in every bite. Start with an ice-cold Spanish beer and the crispy sago and cricket flour chips, then move on to delicate ceviches, tender pork belly and braised goat served with punchy lime juice, coriander and sesame. If you’re game, try the goat’s milk ice cream with candied sweet potato for dessert.
