Porta brings tapas to Salford’s Chapel Street
Look out Chapel Street, a new dining spot has landed! Porta’s winning combination of homemade tapas and chilled-out vibes has gained the tapas bar a huge following, allowing co-founders, brothers Ben and Joe Wright to open a third site in Salford.
Having already wowed us with its Altrincham and Chester venues, Porta has found a new home in the up-and-coming Chapel Street area. Stepping up Salford’s offering, Porta brings us a taste of Spanish shores with favourites like Jamon Iberico and fried Padron peppers.
Forget stuffy sit-down meals, Porta is here to embrace the true concept of tapas. Take time to chat with friends, sip on Spanish wines and tuck into Spanish favourites. Inspired by the laidBACK vibe of traditional Spanish bars in Barcelona and Madrid, Porta is set in the former Midland Bank building. The site has been transformed into a relaxed 65-cover restaurant, complete with original features like the arched windows and parquet flooring, in Bexley Square.
Head Chef, Jose Garzón, of Chester restaurant Joseph Benjamin, will be rustling up classic Spanish-inspired dishes for us hungry Mancs. Get ready to tuck into the likes of chorizo and lentil stew, fried Andalucian style squid with alioli, and slow-roasted ox cheek. It’s only right to grab a glass of one of Porta’s specially-imported Spanish wines or an Estrela Galicia beer to complement your meal.
Step up your after-work drinks with a Spanish beer and patatas bravas at Porta!
