Toro Gordo: Stylish Tapas for Hammersmith

Spanish bar and restaurant Toro Gordo brings piquant panache to West London. I had a fantastic time tasting my way through its menu of contemporary and stylishly presented tapas and reckon if you’re in the area you could do a lot worse. Indeed, for drinky drinks and scrumptious nibbles with a convivial vibe that’s just a short stroll away from Hammersmith Tube (not to mention Ravenscourt Park) you’d be hard pressed to find a better venue.

25% Off Flying Burger Company Premium Burger Delivery

Flying Burger Company is a burger-only/delivery-only biz. Right now it’s serving a small area of West London – W11 4, W14 8, W14 0, W6 7 and W12 8 – roughly Notting Hill and bits near High Street Kensington, Shepherd’s Bush, and Hammersmith. However, I reckon the concept is a smart one and has a good chance of taking off and successfully soaring. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see service extend across London soon. Continue reading
