Rambla’s Victor Garvey to open new Spanish restaurant in London

Following the success of Catalan restaurant Rambla, chef Victor Garvey will open Barullo in the City of London, serving food from across Spain.

Garvey opened Rambla on Soho’s Dean Street, following restaurants Encant and Sibarita, both of which are now closed. Barullo will open in Aldgate, on the site formerly occupied by James Cochran EC3, with plans for a further Soho restaurant, Bar Jaleo, later this year.

Translating from Spanish as hubbub, Garvey intends the 64-cover restaurant to be a brightly coloured and bustling space.

He said: “I want a visit to Barullo, however long or short, to feel like taking a trip to Spain; an escape from the daily grind whether that means a leisurely dinner or grabbing some really great lunch to take back to the office.”

The menu will feature a KFC ‘Kiko Fried Chicken’ consisting of Sherry lees-brined chicken dusted in roasted corn nuts fried with Algeria pepper chutney, and a paella ‘La Masia’ of saffron Calasparra rice, giant prawns and confit pork belly, fire-roasted with piquillo peppers. Desserts on offer will include toasted coconut ice-cream with sour cherry marmalade and Pedro Ximenez reduction.

The dishes, wine and beer will also be available to take away, with the restaurant holding a license to retail alcohol.

Barullo will be open Monday to Saturday, serving lunch and dinner. The restaurant opens in March.
