Sans Patrie – Tapas – Nottingham

The very first thing you learn on Sans Patrie’s web site is “Tucked away” and that’s actually a good evaluation of this spot in no-mans-land between Alftreton and Ilkeston Highway. Their strip of hospitality is stylishly appointed although and would really feel extra at residence in Hockley. Actually its gentle minimalist fashion jogged my memory of Mesa, one other of Nottingham’s new eating places . One small subject on a heat July night was opening the door to offer some air is a good suggestion however the site visitors from the very busy junction made it a loud expertise. While I’m with regards to excessive decibels Sans Patrie additionally place themselves as a spot to only have a drink and supply numerous reside music if thats your kind of factor. On drinks there was a stable choice and was good to see Harvest Pale getting a glance in to the beer checklist fairly than your run of the mill Estrella or Moretti.

Pink Pepper Flatbread

The meals menu was largely an interesting mixture of flatbreads and “Tapas” though surprisingly Patatas Bravas showing beneath a separate “sides” part when it might (ought to?) be thought-about a tapas dish. There was additionally patchy labelling of the meals, the tapas part protecting (V) and (VE) nicely however others lacking this off altogether. This was significantly related to my night as I used to be eating with a vegan couple. Pleasingly although there have been loads of enticing choices for the these on the lookout for all issues plant-based. A flatbread (£9) was first to reach and had a stunning char from the pizza oven. A fairly easy set of toppings with purple pepper dominating however a mix of dried and recent herbs additionally purchased it to life which was an ideal contact alongside the superb base. Spiced cauliflower croquettes (£6.50) weren’t croquettes in any respect, they have been cooked as complete florets but when something that could possibly be an enchancment retaining extra of that earthy nutty notes. The mixture with tahini is at all times a superb pairing and labored nicely right here too.

Our subsequent two dishes have been a bit extra muted for me. Chickpea stew (£6) and vegetable tagine had very comparable tomato primarily based sauces. While they have been nice they didnt have a depth of flavour that advised that they had been effervescent away for hours like the very best examples of their type. I additionally couldn’t detect any North African affect within the tagine which is one thing I count on from that dish. I’ll forgive asparagus being on a menu after the English season is over if it was pretty much as good as this. Mixed with chimichurri and dukka you may assume, as I initially did, there can be an excessive amount of occurring. It actually labored although, the recent heat and acidity of the South American affect in concord with the spices from the Center East.

Chilli Gambas

My solely departure from the vegan choices was a foray into fish. Argentinian Chilli Gambas (£9.50) sounded actually too good to not attempt as one among my favorite tapas dishes. You may’t do a lot flawed with this one in lots of respects and I’m happy to say they have been nicely grilled with punchy garlic and chilli oil. It might solely be improved by totally different plating actually, a wider shallower dish to permit them to take a seat and absorb that oil as a lot as attainable! Lastly some sweetcorn fritters (£6) have been virtually all sweetcorn fairly than a lot egg/flour to bind them which did make for a pop of sweetness from all of the kernels. The pairing with some whipped avocado gave further freshness in addition to a stunning wealthy texture.

Sweetcorn Fritters

There was a beforehand not a dessert possibility however they’ve began stocking Beeston Brownies which you may get with a scoop of ice cream. I assumed I’d give it a go. It was fairly satisfying from a flavour perspective, I selected a raspberry blondie that got here with raspberry coulis and banana ice cream. The problem was the feel, it was critically stable…you wanted some muscle mass to get a spoon by means of this brownie! It might have been nice with a cup of tea however didn’t fairly work as a plated dessert for me.

Raspberry Blondie

Having sampled a good array of, and largely vegan, dishes at Sans Patrie I used to be pretty impressed with many of the providing. There have been some easy classics just like the gambas but in addition some creative new prospers just like the asparagus dishes. Everyone knows there’s lots of competitors for Tapas in Nottingham however Sans Partrie does have its personal place in that crowded market and I suppose a little bit of a monopoly as this much less trendy finish of the town.
