Visit Piccadilly Square for Spanish bites this V-Day.

“Spaniards love eating and drinking and their food is all about olives, olive oil and saffron,” said Piccadilly Square proprietor Pooja Baid. But how does Spanish food and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand? “France and Paris are about love but Spain is about passion,” explained Pooja.

Begin your meal with Patatas Bravas (potatoes are fried first and then roasted with garlic, parsley and paprika, served with a thick Catalan-style tomato sauce) or choose the tapas platter. Then there are goodies like Empanadas (fried pastry filled with beans, corn and cheese with thick tomato sauce cooked Catalan-style), Potato and Spinach Bake (creamy potato and spinach gratin-like dish) and Fideua (a bed of vegetables on which rests vermicelli or pasta).
