Pinchos has taken over where ‘Snags & Son’ used to be, just off the main Leederville strip in Newcastle Street. The decor is pretty much the same as it was but the food is very different. The general theme is tapas of varying sizes and the waiter was very helpful in explaining the portion sizes to us.
You can buy a mouthful of food for $1 or a board for $28, so you just eat as much food as you want to.
We chose the flatbreads with labne, grapes, olives and pickles. This was very nice, olives were not very meaty – just a covering of olive flesh over the small stone, but everything went together well.
We also chose patatas bravas – fairly standard really with nice mayo and spicy relish.
The spanish pate with bread was delicious and came with a nice fennel salad.
We also had mushrooms with blue cheese, PX vinegar and almond crumb – very tasty.
The last dish was roast pork belly with cumin and lemon which was incredibly crispy but lacked a bit of flavour.
I thoroughly enjoyed this meal and found the wait staff helpful and polite. I definitely recommend Pinchos – it’s a bit of a neighbourhood gem.
