One of the strongest cuisines offered by the Liverpool dining scene is Spanish, tapas in particular, if you discount La Tasca that is. Situated on the corner where Hanover Street meets Liverpool One it is in a prominent position. We have been in for cocktails but only recently for food. Tempted by the lunch offer of 3 tapas dishes for £11 it turned out to be great value.
Alot of the popular items from the main menu are included in the lunch offer which is welcome as sometimes the choice can be a bit limited. We started off with a charcuterie board with quality cuts of of Serrano ham, chorizo and pepper salchichón.
Next was a satisfying portion of mussels with cider, thyme, shallots and cream. We mopped up the sauce with the sourdough bread.
Moroccan spiced chicken with yoghurt and flatbread had lovely flavours and was one of Mrs Noms favourite dishes during this visit.
Pumpkin risotto with sage and hazelnut pesto, a light dish which we enjoyed as the other dishes had quite strong flavours and on the plus it counted for one of our 5 a day!
The acid test was the crispy fried squid which were slightly greasy. Still they were ok with a nice ailoli dip, however the Malaga style little squids from Neon Jamon are yet to be topped.
Slow cooked crispy pork belly with apple and cranberry compote. The crackling was great, exactly what you expect from crispy pork belly.
Salt house ribs with sweet and spicy sauce, by that time we regret ordering the ribs as we didn't expect the generous portions from the lunch menu but polished them off all the same.
Salt house Tapas is an ideal place for a quick lunch or a fulfilling evening meal. We both really enjoyed the food here and we are very likely going to come back to try more small plates off the main menu.
