It Just Has To Be Delicious

Pinchos Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

We stopped off at Pinchos for some Sunday afternoon tapas. It occupies a corner position in the heart of the Leederville strip with tables outside as well as inside. When they first opened a few years back, they had a small shop, but have expanded into the shop next door, a move that was needed because they are always busy.

The menus are the type where you tick what you want – at least the wait staff can’t get your order wrong. There are Pinchos classics, small bites, salads, ham and cheese, grilled bread with toppings, tortillas, croquettes, tapas, and a few bigger plates.

We started off with Pan Arabe – flatbread, saffron labne, olives, beetroot, guindilla pickle, grpaes and dukkah. This was one of my favourites, a really nice combination, and the flatbreads were beautifully prepared. I could have happily eaten a very large plate of this and nothing else.

Next came Berenjena – Grilled bread with eggplant, brie and pear chutney. This was nice but quite mildly flavoured and could have benefited from a bit more seasoning.

Then my favourite Patatas Bravas – beautiful roasted potatoes with paprika, tomato and aioli. My only wish was that all of the potatoes were coated with the sauces.

Then the salad arrived – Frutos Secos – rocket, confit nuts, pear, goats cheese and orange segments. A nice mixture that I thought went well together, but my companion wasn’t over-impressed – describing it as a ‘trail mix’ salad.

The last dish was a tapas favourite Campinones con Queso Azul – grilled mushrooms with px vinegar, blue cheese and roasted candied almonds. This was probably the best dish – full of flavour and not too overpowering.

It was a very nice late afternoon lunch, and Pinchos is a casual relaxed atmosphere where you can sit outside and watch the world go by. It’s very tempting to compare it with Duende which is just around the corner, but I think that they are two different vibes. Duende is much more polished and had more of a gourmet feel to it, whereas Pinchos is perfect for dropping by to eat simple but delicious bites. Both venues have a place in Leederville, and they are certainly well loved by the locals.
