La Bodega is one of my favourite finds, recommended to me by a fellow foodie, I just knew it would be something special and it didn’t disappoint.
It calls itself Glasgow’s ‘little hidden gem’ and it certainly is that. The tapas bar is located five minutes from Glasgow’s West End in an old industrial style unit, somewhere you are more than likely to miss if you didn’t know it was there!
Above the restaurant is a dance studio which means the place is usually filled with a mix of people – those wanting to relax with a drink after a hard class or simply enjoying some tapas before a night of dancing.
The tables are set around a dance floor and stage which comes to life with music and dance at weekends. The evidence of this can be seen hanging on the walls in the restaurant – photographs of their various events such as Salsa Sabrosa and the Tango Salon.
The food is exactly as described on the menu, delicious Spanish home cooking. The pork goulash and honey and chorizo salad were the highlights of my meal. For most people it is a bit out of the way, but if you can I would definitely recommend you find your way here…don’t forget your dancing shoes!
