One of the country’s top tapas restaurants is hosting a pop-up event in Cork next month.
Cava Bodega, the hugely popular Galway-based eatery run by Michelin star chef and TV personality, JP McMahon, will open at the Cork International Hotel on Thursday, April 9th.
JP is Culinary Director of the award-winning EATGalway Restaurant Group, which comprises Aniar Restaurant, Cava Bodega and Tartare Café + Wine Bar. Aniar Restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star every year since 2013, and Tartare Café + Wine Bar received a Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand Award for 2019 and 2020.
As well as being a firm fixture on the local food scene in Galway, Cava Bodega’s offering has been described as “currently the best tapas in Ireland” by good critic Tom Doorley.
Guests on the night (tickets are €44.96 here) will be treated to a glass of Cava on arrival along with nibbles such as almonds and olives from 7pm.
Once everyone is seated it’ll be down to business for an evening of sheer foodie indulgence; tapas plates will include cured meats and Spanish cheeses, scallops, meatballs, wild mussels and confit pork belly.
There will also be basque style monkfish, patatas bravas, chocolate mousse and churros on the menu, so bring an appetite.
