Anãda has been operating for over 10 years, carving out a place in this vibrant and trendy neighbourhood with their high-end Spanish tapas. Head Chef Maria Kabal brings an interesting set of influences to her modern take on traditional Spanish.
The sleek restaurant offers a calm ambience with warm lighting and excellent service. The staff are very knowledgeable and may even complete the experience with an impressive Spanish accent.
The menu offers snack-sized tapas, more substantial raciones, and a few paella options. The specials may include gems like venison croquettes with sour cherry, fennel and sage. This indulgent mouthful delivers a harmonious combination of rich flavours and crisp textures. The Nassari anchovy comes on black bread – the eye-catching colour courtesy of unami-laden squid ink – and topped with goat cheese. The rabbit and tarragon canelon has an interesting twist: instead of traditional canelon pasta, the tarragon-infused rabbit is encased in lightly caramelised quince skin and topped with braised leek and crispy fried mustard greens.
